Kayla Harrison and her road to defending the PFL women’s lightweight title continues on June 25 when she takes on newcomer Cindy Dandois at PFL 6.
Harrison (9-0-0), 30, is the overwhelming favourite going into the fight. She has not been tested in the PFL cage as of yet, stopping Mariana Morais in her last contest.
Dandois (16-5-0), 36, will look to return to the win column after losing a decision to Kaitlin Young in her debut at PFL 3 in May. She has fought in many organizations, including the UFC, Invicta, and Bellator.
Harrison is tied with Larissa Pacheo atop the women’s lightweight standings with six points apiece. Dandois will be looking for a finish to leapfrog into the fray.
The top four fighters with the most points make the playoffs in each PFL weight division. In the playoffs, fighters compete in elimination format to compete in the finals for the title and the $1 million USD prize.
“There were a lot of exciting knockouts that took place during PFL 3 for the heavyweight and women’s lightweight divisions and as the regular season concludes, all these fighters will be looking for an early stoppage to secure their spots in the playoffs,” president of fighter operations Ray Sefo said in a press release. “Many of our world class athletes can still qualify for the PFL playoffs but just about all of they are facing a win or go home scenario. I can’t wait to watch what happens next on June 25.”
