Two-time Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison (2-0) has signed an exclusive deal with the PFL that will see her compete in a 155-pound division next year. The PFL is currently in the midst of its inaugural season, which consisted of 72 male fighters competing for a $10 million prize pool.
In 2019, that business model will include a 155-pound women's division. The PFL will be the only major North American promotion to offer that weight class.
"We're super excited to continue working with Kayla," said PFL president Carlos Silva. "We're going to go ahead and add a seventh weight division to our format. It's going to operate the same as the men's divisions have in 2018. We thought it was a smart weight for some of these women to compete at."
