For the past two years, the PFL has built up Kayla Harrison as the next big thing in MMA. The two-time Olympic Judo Champion entered the MMA scene in 2018 following a 45-7 judo record. Now, their gamble will look to pay off, as she will main event the PFL Finals inside Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater on New Year’s Eve.

Harrison is set to face Larissa Pacheco in a rematch from the beginning of the second season. All fights will be five rounds, with the winner set to become a champion and win $1 million.

It has been a somewhat easy road for Harrison (6-0) to make it towards the finals, going a perfect 3-0 in the women’s lightweight tournament. She ended up beating Larissa (13-3) back in May in the PFL season opener. This one is more personal just for the fact of how she was taken care of; Harrison did not finish Pacheco, winning by unanimous decision. The only woman to avoid a submission or KO attempt, Larissa’s resiliency upset Harrison. It also upset fans after she beat fan favorite Sarah Kaufman in the semifinals.  Now, the 29-year-old Harrison will look to prove to herself and the world she can get the job done.

The co-main event will feature Ray Cooper III against David Michaud in the welterweight finals. Cooper was the runner-up last season, losing to Magomed Magomedkerimov via second-round submission. Opening up the main card will be Emiliano Sordi v. Jordan Johnson for the Light Heavyweight Title. The prelims will feature Brendan Loughnane v. David Alex Valente.
