Kayla Harrison responds to Larissa Pacheco before the PFL championship

NEW YORK – On Friday, Kayla Harrison will attempt to claim her third straight PFL World Championship when she takes on a familiar foe in Brazilian standout Larissa Pacheco. The two have shared the cage twice before, with Harrison picking up decision wins each time, but Pacheco promises something different this time.

Pacheco has been outspoken about her intentions to unseat a woman she now considers a rival, but Harrison shut down that conversation at Wednesday’s pre-event press conference before the card.

“I mean, can you call it a rivalry if you’ve never won a round?” Harrison asked. “I don’t know if that’s fair. I don’t want to put that kind of pressure on Larissa. It’s not a rivalry. She has nothing to lose.”
