Six titles are on the line Friday night from Madison Square Garden as the Professional Fighters League will host its first pay-per-view at the 2022 World Championships.
The main event of the night is the final fight in the trilogy of PFL’s biggest star Kayla Harrison fighting Larissa Pacheco for the Women’s Lightweight title. This will be their first meeting since 2019, when Harrison defeated Pacheco twice by decision.
Harrison has a career record of 15-0 and is a two-time PFL Tournament champion, winning it all in 2019 and 2021. One of MMA’s biggest stars is also a two-time gold medalist in Juno.Read:Ben Foster worries for Erik ten Hag's Manchester United playing away from home this season – talkSPORT
Since her loss to Harrison, Pacheco has won five in a row. She is now 18-4 in her career, with 17 wins by knockout or submission.
While there are plenty of other title fights on the card, one of the marquees isn’t for a belt. Aspen Ladd, who was recently signed by the PFL after leaving the UFC, will take on Julia Budd in a Women’s Lightweight bout.
