South Florida’s Kayla Harrison is an inspiring Professional Fighters League lightweight champion who is gearing for the 2021 season.
PFL recently conducted a Media Day with Harrison (8-0) at the award-winning American Top Team in (South Florida) Coconut Creek.
In my video interview with Harrison, she discusses winning the PFL title and $1-million on New Year’s Eve 2019, training at ATT, country singer Tim McGraw, UNO card game, her Fearless Foundation, ATT Founder Dan Lambert and his pursuit of Harrison becoming a pro wrestler and more.
Just 30 years old, she has already established quite the resume.
Harrison, who lives in South Florida via Middletown, Ohio, and Boston, is not only a PFL champion, but she is a two-time Olympic gold medalist in judo for Team USA, a two-time “Impractical Jokers” guest star, author of “Fighting Back” and leads the Fearless Foundation.
She is also an UNO card game champion.
When you drive into Middletown, Ohio, the sign reads home of Cris Carter, Jerry Lucas and Kayla Harrison. That’s cool.
Harrison is currently training at American Top Team, preparing for the PFL 2021 season.
PFL, the fastest growing and most innovative sports league in the world, is gearing for the 2021 regular season, which begins April 23 on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ in prime-time.

Kayla Harrison ‘Fighting Back’
Dealing with the highs and lows of life, Harrison authored a book “Fighting Back,” telling her story of child sexual abuse by her coach to help others recognize and prevent child sexual abuse. She also guides the Fearless Foundation to shine a light on the darkness that is child sexual abuse and to enrich the lives of survivors through education and sport, thus leading them to mastery and enabling them to flourish in all aspects of life.
