Julia Budd hoping for Kayla Harrison fight after upcoming PFL showdown against Aspen Ladd

Read Time:1 Minute, 27 Second

Julia Budd returns to the cage at next week’s PFL 2022 Championships event when she takes on UFC alum Aspen Ladd.

Julia Budd moves back down to featherweight for her next fight.


Budd will be moving back down to featherweight (145) from lightweight (155) for next week’s fight against Ladd. The former Bellator featherweight champion couldn’t be happier and feels as though 145 is the right weight-class for her.

This is a better weight for me. At 155 [pounds, lightweight], I walk at 160, 161. That was as big as I could get when I’m training full time and putting all the— training as much as I am for my fights. So this is a better weight class for me, and it’s one that I’ve been dominant in most of my career. Yeah, definitely featherweight.” Budd said during a recent chat with Cageside Press.

With a victory over Aspen Ladd, Budd is hopeful she can have a future super-fight against the organization’s biggest star Kayla Harrison.

I definitely want that fight. Maybe, it might feel that way [like the one that got away]. I’m not sure. It’s kind of like, yeah, she’s still fighting. So I could still see that fight happening at a Pay-Per-View card, at 145 or at 155. It wouldn’t really matter. But yeah, I think there would be a little bit of disappointment that that fight never happened.” she continued.

The PFL 2022 Championships event takes place on Friday, November 25, 2022, from the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, United States. The main card will be aired live on pay-per-view from 1 pm ET.
