Kayla Harrison might be uncertain on where her future lies when it comes to the MMA world, but former UFC Champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk feels that Kayla will be the biggest name in WMMA soon.
Joanna revealed the same during a recent interview with Helen Yee Sports and said that Kayla is a special talent.
“I don’t know what’s good for her. I know she’s smart. She’s a super-big inspiration to all of us. This is what I love—when someone is focused on the prize. And she’s definitely one of the hardest-working athletes in the gym in general. She’s (a two-time) Olympian. And she’s special, and it’s good to have her here. She’s tough physically, mentally, she doesn’t give up, and she deserve to get paid. She’s already, but soon, she’s going to be the name of women’s MMA,” Joanna said (h/t MMA news)
The Polish MMA superstar further went on to add that she would love to see Kayla competing in the UFC.
“I would love to see her in the UFC, but like I said, she has to get paid. She won PFL two times. She won a million bucks a few times, you know? She doesnt’ have to fight for small money. She always brings the extra attention. She always perform very well. So she needs to get paid, and I feel the UFC should consider having Kayla Harrison,” Joanna added.
Kayla currently holds a professional MMA record of 12-0 to her name and is currently testing free agency after her successful outing with Professional Fighters League.
