PFL 3: Kayla Harrison Begins Her Quest For Third World Title

Reigning and undefeated world champion Kayla Harrison puts her record on the line at PFL 3 in the main event.

Kayla Harrison has cemented herself as one of the greatest female fighters of all-time.

Harrison, a two-time unbeaten PFL champion, meets Marina Mokhnatkina at PFL 3 this Friday. The bout headlines the card live on ESPN2. 

The 31-year-old Harrison has secured a win in all 12 of her pro mixed martial arts. That includes an October finish in the second round over Taylor Guardado. 

For Harrison, that secured a second PFL title and her standing in the division. 

An Olympic gold medalist, Harrison has learned how to work through the PFL regular season and tournament grind. She has no issues quickly solving opponents and ending things quickly. 

For Harrison, this could be one of her toughest challenges to date. 

Mokhnatkina is a six-time gold medalist in Sambo at the World Championship level. She also won two golds at the European Championship, one at the Summer Universiade and another at the World Combat Games. 

Last August, Mokhnatkina made her PFL debut with a decision victory over Claudia Zamora. She is 6-2 overall with four wins by submission. 

The remaining PFL card will feature reigning champion Ray Cooper III in action. Cooper battles Carlos Leal in the welterweight regular season. 

Anthony Pettis collides with Myles Price and Rory MacDonald meets Brett Cooper.
