Kayla Harrison
Kayla Harrison inched closer to what may become the most lucrative free agency in mixed martial arts history with yet another ho-hum first round stoppage defeating Genah Fabian in the main event of PFL 8 Thursday night from Hollywood, Fla. Harrison quickly got a clinch against the taller striking specialist and, after throwing a few knees to the leg, took Fabian down with a trip landing in side control. She soon mounted and began raining punches down on Fabian who had no answer for the two-time Olympic judo gold medalist's ground game. As her opponent turned to her stomach, Harrison continued to pound her until the referee finally stopped the contest.

Harrison moves on to the finals of the women's lightweight tournament where she'll meet Taylor Guardado, who defeated Mariana Morais earlier in the night. The match-up will be the last of her PFL contract and, if she wins, Harrison will likely be a hot property sought after by both the UFC and Bellator. She recently indicated if the PFL wants to keep her they'll have to step up either financially or by bringing in a much better level of competition for her.
