Kayla Harrison continued her seemingly incessant march against the lightweight championships of PFL women.
The two-time Olympic gold medal winning judoka was highly gifted at Thursday's contiguous event meeting with Morgan Frier at PFL 4 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and she did not disappoint. It didn't take long for Harrison to show off her gripping expertise as she muscled Frier against the cage and made a takedown.
From there she went into half-guard and then proceeded to a crucifix position which allowed her to pepper Frier with short strokes on the ground. When Frier moved to defend herself, she left the arm open for a key lock that Harrison pounced on to win at 1
With the win, Harrison won six points to give himself nine in total in the 2019 PFL season, good enough for the second seed in the upcoming playoffs. She will take on Geneh Fabian in the semi-finals, with the winner moving on to the PFL season final on December 31, where they will compete for a championship and a $ 1 million prize.
In the second semifinal, top seat Sarah Kaufman fights Larissa pacheco.
