“I truly believe today Kayla Harrison is the baddest woman in any room. No disrespect to nobody.”
That’s undefeated PFL star Kayla Harrison‘s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, making it clear … the 2x Olympic gold medalist is a better fighter than every other woman on planet Earth.
But … but, what about Amanda Nunes??
Abdelaziz says Kayla “looks up to Amanda very much” … but he’s confident Harrison could handle the consensus greatest female MMA fighter ever — and it’s a fight he wants to set up.
“Listen, if somebody writes the check for 8 figures, we can make this fight happen tomorrow.”
How about Olympic gold medalist and boxing champ turned 1-0 MMA fighter, Claressa Shields?
“It’s kind of disrespectful when people bring Claressa Shields in the same sentence as Kayla,” Ali says.
Abdelaziz says Shields is an amazing boxer … “probably a future Hall of Famer” — but she’d stand no chance against Kayla in the cage.
“In reality, you know, it’s 187. It’s a murder. You know, it’s a fact. If Kayla fought the boxer, that wouldn’t even make sense. Claressa fighting in MMA, it’s not going to last probably 60 seconds.”
Kayla’s manager also brought up Ronda Rousey … Kayla’s former roommate and Judo teammate.
“[Kayla’s] everything that Ronda Rousey was supposed to be. She’s Ronda Rousey 6.0. You know what I’m saying?” Abdelaziz says.
Before Kayla fights Nunes or Shields … she continues her quest to win another million-dollar prize (her 3rd) when she takes on Cindy Dandois Friday night at PFL 6.
