  1. Finally, Jozette Cotton back on a big stage again, Bellator 129 vs Holly Lawson. I hope the Professional Fighters League brings in Pam Sorenson and Sarah Patterson and Bobbi Jo Dalziel and all the other ladies they can and kick their Women’s Tournament off with a bang.

  2. I agree with Rodney. PFL could create the premier W155 division.
    Alot of the 145 fighters , walk around at approx 170lb. So can fight at 155.
    Would be alot healthier for them, as no extreme weight cuts.
    Would increase their power too, as DC noticed about his own punches in his heavyweight fight against Stipe.
    Even some of the 135lb can fight at 155. eg. Amanda Nunes recently posted a photo of her on scales, she weighed 162!!

    Im wondering how quickly Kayla’s striking and striking footwork have developed. As Cotton seems to have mostly a boxing base, from looking Cotton’s fight vids.
    An exciting fight. Almost style v style.
    The punching, the evasion, the punching footwork – That is the real battleground for me.
    As wrestling, clinching, tripping, throwing, groundworkwise Kayla outmatches Jozette.

    I want to see the development in Kayla’s ability to take, and to evade punches while going for the clinch.
    Or if Kayla decides not to take the fight to the ground, and wants to experience time punching in the Octogon, her ability to match Jozette’s striking game

  3. Wayne, per Kayla Harrison interview when she was on The MMA Hour several months ago with Ariel Helwani, she said that The Professional Fighters League are planning on having a Women’s Featherweight Tournament starting in January 2019 that will be year long with the winner receiving $1 million dollars. She also said the Professional Fighters League are looking into another Women’s division to do a Women’s Tournament for, but she wasn’t sure of what other division the Professional Fighters League are planning on adding outside of the Women’s Featherweight division.
