Kayla Harrison has spoken about preliminary plans for the PFL to put on cross-promotional fights.

The debate surrounding where Harrison would end up had been going on for months prior to her re-signing with the PFL a few weeks ago. It was a move that took some by surprise, as many believed that she was looking to fight in bigger promotions.

The big question now is a simple one: who is she going to fight?

The Olympian has won back-to-back lightweight titles in the PFL and alongside that, she's also been able to take home a sum of $2 million. Under the new Super Fight Series, though, Harrison has revealed that she could take on foes coming over from other organizations.

During an interview with MMA Junkie, Harrison said:

“The PFL is going to launch a Super Fight Series. I believe it’s going to be on PPV, and they want to bring the big stars of the sport together. They want to bring different promotions, different everything together and have these super awesome fights that the fans want to see. So yeah, that’s on the PFL to make happen but I’m excited to be a part of it. I believe in it, and I’m really very hopeful.”

Who could Kayla Harrison fight?

There are certain opponents in the UFC, Bellator, Invicta and potentially other promotions that Kayla Harrison could meet and have it be dubbed as a superfight. However, the first of those two companies stands out above the rest.

There was a ton of speculation surrounding a potential fight between Harrison and Bellator's Cris Cyborg before the former re-signed with the PFL. It's a fight that's been talked about for a long time and both women seem particularly interested in making it happen.

Dang it. I went too far. Cris please fight me! I won’t use judo just wrestling.

On the flip side, UFC featherweight queen Amanda Nunes may be free once she's had her bantamweight rematch with Julianna Pena later this year. A Nunes-Harrison bout would undoubtedly be one of the biggest fights in women's MMA. It's a long shot that the UFC will cross-promote in such a manner, but in this game, you should never say never.
