MMA Crossfire Vault – WSOF 36 to be held New Year’s Eve in New York’s MSG

Harrison, 26, is a former training partner of former UFC world champion Ronda Rousey. The possibility of Harrison competing in the UFC against Rousey and other top contenders has been a wish for many fight fans.

At Rio 2016 where Harrison won the gold medal,  she was sour on the possibility of entering MMA, but one learns never to say never.

Harrison’s opponent has not yet been officially released.
