Kayla Harrison, an Olympic Gold Medalist in Judo, who is currently 2-0 in her professional MMA career, has often times been compared to Ronda Rousey – another Judoka who did extremely well in MMA.

However, Rousey’s MMA career unraveled pretty quickly with back to back knockout losses to Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes – both due to her deficiency in striking and wrestling.

And Harrison, who currently fights in PFL, has been watching keenly and taken notes.

Speaking to Brett Okamoto of ESPN, Harrison mentioned that she is wary not to make the same mistakes that led to Rousey’s eventual downfall.


Harrison also promised that she would, eventually, fight the most feared woman on the planet Cris Cyborg someday.
