Cris Cyborg accuses Kayla Harrison of turning down PFL fight offer

Cris Cyborg claims Kayla Harrison said no to a potential fight between the two.

The Bellator women’s featherweight champion took to X on Wednesday and accused Harrison of declining an offer from the PFL.

“I am disappointed to hear that after @PeteMurrayPFL offered me the date and location for a fight against @KaylaH, and after we accepted the bout, that she has now declined the offer,” Cyborg wrote.

Harrison did not immediately respond to MMA Junkie’s request for comment

This is the latest of many public jabs thrown in the Cyborg-Harrison saga, which has played out over the last few years. Cyborg, who’s widely considered the greatest female featherweight in MMA history, has been linked to Harrison for quite some time, as Harrison has excelled in her transition from Olympic judo to MMA, winning the PFL lightweight title two separate times.

Being under contract in separate promotions, the fight never came close to getting done. However, PFL purchased Bellator in November, making the potential fight a real possibility.

Cyborg’s accusation is contrary to PFL founder Donn Davis’ comments after the 2023 PFL Championship on Nov. 24 as he made clear that Larissa Pacheco, 2023 PFL women’s featherweight champion, was going to fight Cyborg, not Harrison.
