As Kayla Harrison approaches the end of her PFL contract, the decorated fighter has had another exchange with Dana White through the media.

The two-time, Judo, Olympic Gold Medalist, and 2019 PFL lightweight champ is set to face Taylor Guardado Wednesday in the PFL’s, 2021 championship final. The fight is also the last on Harrison’s contract, and as a result, there’s been considerable speculation about her moving to the UFC.

White recently spoke with TSN, and while discussing Harrison’s future, the UFC President seemed to warn her against leaving the PFL (quotes via MMA Junkie).

“If I was her, I’d stay right where she is and keep picking off the people over there,” White said. “… I would stay there and keep fighting the type of women she’s fighting there before I would come here and fight an Amanda Nunes. That’s for damn sure.”

When asked to respond to White, Harison made it clear she has no doubt she’ll establish herself as the greatest, female fighter ever.

“Thanks for the advice, Uncle Dana, I appreciate you,” Harrison said. “My job is going to focus on Oct. 27. I really don’t care what other people have to say about me or my career, my choices or my options. I’m going to do what’s best for me, and that’s it.”

“That’s what he does,” Harrison said. “That’s his job. I’m gonna talk about how I’m the greatest of all time, and he’s gonna talk about, ‘Well, calm down. No, you’re not.’ This is a game. This is a business. The difference is I really am gonna be the greatest of all time. He’s gonna see.”

The 31-year-old Harrison has gone 11-0 in pro MMA bouts to date.
