Kayla Harrison: Cris Cyborg Ducking Me
The offer from Davis comes after a recent interview from Harrison regarding the PFL telling Cyborg — a supposed free agent — to name her price.
In the end, Cyborg didn’t end up signing with the PFL and will instead make her professional boxing debut in September in what is a reported one-fight deal.
Harrison is even prepared to make concessions in order for the fight to happen.
“The last I talked to them [PFL], Cyborg was a free agent,” Harrison said on The MMA Hour (via MMA Junkie). “They were basically like, name your price, and I don’t know if they heard anything back. I haven’t been keeping up with it to be honest because my job is not to promote, my job is to fight. We all want this fight on this side, PFL and myself.
“… We can do winner takes all, or we can do when she loses, she gets to keep her purse. If she needs help getting the deal signed, I will call Peter Murray myself, and Donn Davis, and ask them. Whatever price she wants, I will speak to them on her behalf, and I will go through a full USADA drug testing. I will be drug tested every day from now until the fight if she’s worried about that. She doesn’t have to be drug tested at all. The only thing that I ask is that they allow elbows. … So I can put one through her skull.”
With the offer from Davis, there is still some hope of the fight taking place in the near future.
All Harrison can do is hope for now.
“I want to make this happen,” Harrison said. “Like, I’m not fake. This is what I want.”
Do you think we’ll see Kayla Harrison vs. Cris Cyborg?
