Professional Fighters League has announced they will host their first female tournament in 2019 featuring female 155-pound lightweight competitors.
The only announced competitor for the tournament as of yet is one of the organization’s top stars, Kayla Harrison. The Olympic Gold Medallist is 2-0 since making her professional debut with the promotion earlier this year. In June, Harrison submitted Brittney Elkin in the very first round, she followed up in August with a third-round TKO win over Jozette Cotton.
A PFL official commented on the upcoming tournament during a chat with MMAJunkie.
“We’re super excited to continue working with Kayla,” Silva said. “We’re going to go ahead and add a seventh weight division to our format. It’s going to operate the same as the men’s divisions have in 2018. We thought it was a smart weight for some of these women to compete at.”
