Kayla Harrison might have escaped Cris Cyborg by jumping to the UFC, but the Bellator champ assured that the former PFL fighter wouldn’t be able to avoid her in other ways.

Harrison is now a part of the UFC roster after UFC CEO Dana White announced her move. However, it was a surprise for many, especially for some PFL and Bellator fighters.

Prior to her signing, Harrison made callouts to Cyborg, leading many to believe that a fight between the two would happen soon and that the former PFL talent would stay with the company. Unfortunately, this is no longer possible due to Harrison’s sudden move. Cyborg refuses to completely accept that.

Despite Harrison now out of the PFL roster, Cyborg is making sure that the female fighter would still feel her presence. According to the 38-year-old, she will be training with Holly Holm, who will face Harrison in her bantamweight and UFC debut at UFC 300 in April.

“I already have a date to go to Albuquerque; I’m very excited,” Cyborg told James Lynch on YouTube. “I talk to the team, talk to Holly, you know, we been studying Kayla for a little while already, you know, I have been training for her already, I’m very excited to- I’m a super-fan of Holly Holm. I think she’s a legend, she’s a big example, the female fighter is really nice part of her camp, and I think she’s going to come with a great victory, you know? It’s going to be good.”

The news follows Cyborg’s earlier claim that the PFL reached out to her to fight Harrison. According to her, she agreed with the offer, but the pair never made it to the PFL vs. Bellator event lineup, which, needless to say, disappointed Cyborg. In her earlier statement, the Bellator fighter blamed Harrison for the matter, saying the fighter didn’t sign the contract. After that, the news about Harrison’s move to the UFC was revealed, explaining what actually happened.
