With a remarkable combat sports journey punctuated by numerous accolades, Harrison harbors aspirations of adding a UFC title to her illustrious career.

Recognizing the formidable challenge posed by Holm, who boasts victories over current UFC bantamweight champion Raquel Pennington and a memorable head-kick knockout of Ronda Rousey, Harrison remains undaunted by the task ahead.

“There’s one last mountain to climb, and that’s UFC gold,” Harrison affirmed. “That’s what I’m coming for. That’s what my goal is. Holly Holm is a step to that. … I think that Holly is the toughest fight in the division for me. First of all, her boxing pedigree. Her record – she’s fought all of the best girls.”

“She’s always in the mix, she’s always at the top, she’s been around the sport for a long time, she’s a super veteran, she knows what she’s doing, she’s a former champion, and she’s an MMA fighter. Her grappling has gotten a lot better. You know her footwork is top notch. Her fight IQ is through the roof. She is f*cking good. She’s one of the greats.”
