Bellator President Scott Coker said the promotion is definitely interested in acquiring the services of undefeated PFL women's lightweight champion and current free agent Kayla Harrison.
Coker spoke with MMA Junkie's Danny Segura ahead of this weekend's Bellator 271 event in Hollywood, Florida, and said that Harrison is expected to attend the event, where he hopes to have a bigger discussion with her and her team about her future potentially being in Bellator.
“Yeah, absolutely,” Coker said. “I think that we would love to have, you know, a bigger conversation and see if we can come to some type of arrangement. I mean, listen, it’s not just Kayla, but it’s really any free agent that’s out there that’s at that world-class level, you know, that we feel could add value to the company. We want to go sign them. I think she just became a free agent recently. So I think that I think she’s coming to the fight tomorrow with Dan Lambert and (Bellator fighter) (Kyoji) Horiguchi is going to be here, so that’ll be fun. So I think they’re all going to sit together and then, you know, we’ll say hello and start having a dialogue.”
