Two-time PFL champion Kayla Harrison also joins the show to preview her upcoming return to action after she signed a new deal with the promotion following a stint in free agency.

Harrison will detail what it was like being a free agent for the first time, the potential that she’ll get the chance to face Cris Cyborg in the future and a fiery response to UFC champion Julianna Pena.
