PFL Playoffs: Can Kayla Harrison Avoid The Postseason Upset Bug?

The PFL Playoffs have featured a string of upsets. Kayla Harrison isn’t expecting to follow suit.

Harrison will meet Martina Jindrova in the main event Saturday live on ESPN. The card takes place from the Copper Box Arena in London, England.

The upset bug started with Anthony Pettis, lost in the playoff opener to Stevie Ray. This past weekend, it was Rory MacDonald, as Dilano Taylor scored a stunning victory on short notice.

Harrison, though, is a completely different fighter. And has a completely different mindset than many others.

She is elite. Elite at everything she does when it comes to fight prep, the walk to the cage and executing inside the PFL SmartCage. Harrison gets the job done and moves on.

However, there could be a small wrinkle to it all. Recently, she has really pushed hard for a bout with Cris Cyborg. While this is nothing new, the demeanor and attitude of Harrison has changed regarding the fight.

Could that leave a small sliver of an opening for Jindrova? Or maybe a little gap in the door for either Larissa Pacheco – who has faced Harrison before – or Olena Kolesnyk at the PFL Championships to knock the queen off?

Along with the women’s lightweight semifinals, featherweights will be in action. Chris Wade takes on Brendan Loughnane in one bout, while the other will see Ryoji Kudo battle Bubba Jenkins.
