Kayla Harrison, an emerging star in mixed martial arts, has signed a multi-year extension to fight in PFL, she told ESPN on Thursday.

A former two-time Olympic gold medalist in judo, Harrison, 29, is currently competing in PFL's lightweight playoffs, which will wrap up at the end of 2019.

Terms of her new deal were not disclosed.

"I am super excited to be signing a multi-fight deal with the PFL," Harrison told ESPN. "This has been my home from the beginning with MMA. Because of them, I've been able to come so far. The women's platform has grown tremendously. They've made it completely equal for men and women.

"We all have the opportunity to fight for $1 million. Not only that, I'm going to become one of, if not the highest paid females in MMA. I'm super happy to be part of team PFL."

Harrison is scheduled to face Bobbi Jo Dalziel in the PFL semifinals on Friday in Las Vegas (8 p.m. ET on ESPN+, 10 p.m. on ESPN2).
