Kayla Harrison showed off her strength by taking Alex Pereira down with a massive Judo throw.

Kayla is a beast

Less than two months since submitting Holly Holm in her UFC debut, Harrison has already been back in the gym. She recently linked up with Pereira and the pair appeared to have enjoyed a fun yet competitive training session.

In a video now circulating online, Harrison was challenged by the reigning light heavyweight champ to try and take him down. As expected, the former PFL champion obliged and to everyone’s surprise, Harrison slammed “Poatan” to the mat with a single judo throw.

From the look of it, even Pereira was a bit surprised by how strong Harrison is.

Check out the clip below:

Kayla and Alex are focused on their goals

As it stands, both Pereira and Harrison are having a great run in their respective MMA careers. At the same time, they are also laser-focused on their goals.

For obvious reasons, Harrison is being linked to a number of bantamweight contenders as her possible next opponent. However, the two-time Olympic gold medalist remains firm on her plan to fight for the title first and face anybody put in front of her.

On the other hand, Pereira has been eager to move up to the heavyweight division. However, the UFC seems to be not buying into the idea at this point.
