Kayla Harrison is pound for pound one of the best female fighters on the planet today and speculation about a UFC switch has been a topic for a long time now. UFC president Dana White has today spoken about Harrison and what he would do if he was in her position — this and much more on Monday's social media roundup.
Dana White says "If I was there I'd stay right where she is" about Kayla Harrison
Arguably PFL's biggest draw, Kayla Harrison could be on the verge of either exiting the promotion or signing a new deal with the promotion.
If Harrison was to reject a new deal with PFL and move to another MMA organisation, the UFC would surely be the number one destination for her to go and test her skills.
Harrison is currently 11-0 in MMA and has yet to be really tested inside the cage.
UFC president Dana White has today spoken about the possibility of Harrison joining the UFC and what he would do if he was in Harrison's position.
Check out what White had to say below.
Dana White on Kayla Harrison: "If I was her, I'd stay right where she is and keep picking off the people over there... 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." pic.twitter.com/seT08YhZa5— Aaron Br--nsteter (@aaronbronsteter) October 25, 2021
Without exactly saying what he really thinks, White is alluding to that he believes that Harrison is getting easy and hand picked fights in PFL and if she came into the UFC it wouldn't end well for her.
Harrison clearly has all the physical aspects and essential skills needed to compete at the highest level in MMA but is yet to be tested against elite competition.
If Harrison was to sign for the UFC, do you think she would be able to defeat the likes of Amanda Nunes?
