“We will shock the world when we receive the opportunity. We had our eye on the PFL when deciding to make the transition to MMA. I believe if they give us the opportunity, we would create magic because Mirela is the real deal.” he said during his interview with WMMArankings.com.

Nasser further went on to note that Vargas could get a win over anyone in the PFL including Kayla.

“Mirela is able to beat anyone if she connects a punch. Kayla is a real champion but if Mirela has an opportunity, everyone will see she is a real nightmare. We will continue to make fights until the PFL look into us. We want to continue breaking records, Ronda Rousey won her shortest fight in 14 seconds, we won our debut in 12 seconds. If PFL give us an opportunity, we will win against anyone, including Kayla.” He added.
