Ali Abdelaziz believes that Kayla Harrison has what it takes to beat the likes of Amanda Nunes, Julianna Pena, and Cris Cyborg in the same night.
Ali revealed the same in his recent interview with ESPN MMA and claimed that Harrison is the pound-for-pound greatest female fighter of all time.
"She's the pound-for-pound greatest [female] fighter of all time. We talked about Ronda beating grown men, Kayla beating grown men, if Kayla meets Julianna Pena on the street what's going to happen? What happens if Kayla meets Julianna Pena on the street. We know what [will] happen right? And I like Julianna, I respect her, nobody gave Julianna a chance against Amanda [but] Kayla will beat Julianna Pena, Amanda Nunes, Cris Cyborg, all on the same day,” he said (h/t SportsKeeda).
A two-time Olympic Gold Medallist, Harrison currently holds a record of 12-0 to her name and has been undefeated across her run in Professional Fighters League and Invicta FC. She dominated through the 2021 PFL season as well by securing wins over Mariana Morais, Cindy Dandois, Genah Fabian, and Taylor Guardado.
Amanda Nunes, meanwhile, is the reigning UFC Featherweight champion and is expected to fight Julianna Pena for the UFC bantamweight title soon. Pena has been vocal about Harrison as well claiming that Harrison makes a career out of tomato cans.
Cris Cyborg, on the other hand, had also expressed her interest in fighting Harrison.
