Kayla Harrison stored on rolling by means of her MMA profession Thursday and shortly will battle for one more $1 million prize.
Harrison dominated Genah Fabian to achieve the 2021 PFL playoff ultimate within the ladies’s light-weight division. She received the 2019 season just some years after she received her second Olympic gold medal in judo on the 2016 Games.
Ronda Rousey grew to become a breakthrough ladies’s MMA world celebrity after taking bronze in judo on the 2008 Games. Henry Cejudo grew to become a two-division UFC champion after he received gold in wrestling for the U.S. Sara McMann received silver in wrestling for the U.S. Hector Lombard grew to become a Bellator champion and was an Olympian for Cuba. Dan Kelly had a strong UFC run and was, remarkably, a four-time Olympian in judo for Australia.
Gable Steveson received gold in freestyle wrestling earlier this month for the U.S. – and has had his sights set on an eventual MMA run for some time. Bellator president Scott Coker mentioned he’d have curiosity in signing him, too.
With Olympians transferring to MMA a longstanding factor that doesn’t appear to be able to let up, host John Morgan requested our panel on this week’s “Spinning Back Clique” to present some recommendation to Steveson and future MMA hopefuls. Hear what Brian “Goze” Garcia, Nolan King and Matthew Wells have to supply within the video above, or try the total episode under.
