Two-time PFL Women’s Lightweight Champion Kayla Harrison defeated Kaitlin Young in the PFL 6 main event on Friday night at the Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Kayla Harrison (14-0) controlled the center of the cage before scoring with a huge double leg takedown on Young. Kayla continued to work from side control where she looked for a crucifix and landed some punches. Harrison briefly ended up in the north-south position before taking her opponent’s back, where she pummeled Young with punches until the referee stepped in and called a stop to the fight in the first round.
Kayla earned herself six points and the second seed in the 2022 PFL Playoffs. The undefeated Harrison will now travel to London to take on Martina Jindrova (6-2) on Saturday 20th August at the Copper Box Arena in Stratford, London. The upcoming fight will see the two-time Olympic gold medalist return to the city where she won her first Olympic gold medal in the 2012 games.
