Kayla Harrison is determined to fight once more in 2020.
The 2019 PFL women’s lightweight champion is targeting a return to action under the Titan FC banner on Dec. 18. Harrison (8-0) , is struggling to find an opponent, though, and took to Twitter on Monday to issue an open challenge to anyone willing to face her in a 150-pound catchweight.
“If anyone wants to fight me on December 18th @TitanFighting at a catch weight of 150lbs please please contact @AliAbdelaziz00!” Harrison wrote on Twitter.

Harrison, a two-time Olympic gold medalist in judo, most recently competed at Invicta FC 43 on Nov. 20. She stopped Courtney King in the second round of their featherweight main event, which was Harrison’s debut in the weight class after spending previous fights at 155 pounds.
The 30-year-old Harrison remains unbeaten in MMA since making her debut in summer 2018. She’s expected to return for PFL upcoming 2021 season in hopes of repeating her championship run.
Getting another bout in on Dec. 18 is the priority now, though, and according to ESPN, Harrison’s manager Ali Abdelaziz will even put money forward to make a bigger purse for any willing foe.
