Amanda Nunes, former two-division UFC champion, has responded to the recent announcement of Kayla Harrison's signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). The promotion's CEO, Dana White, revealed that Harrison, a former two-time Professional Fighters League (PFL) women's lightweight champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist judoka, has entered an exclusive agreement to join the UFC roster.

Harrison, known for her dominant performances in the PFL, is set to make her promotional debut in the bantamweight division at the highly anticipated UFC 300 event on April 13 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Her opponent for this landmark fight will be former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm.

The news of Harrison's transition to the UFC prompted a reaction from Nunes, her former training partner at American Top Team (ATT). Nunes engaged with Dana White's Instagram post regarding Harrison's signing, expressing her response with a 'Face with Monocle' emoji and a 'Rolling on the Floor Laughing' emoji.

Nunes and Harrison share a history of mutual interest in facing each other inside the octagon. However, complications related to cross-platform issues have thus far prevented the realization of this highly anticipated showdown.
