2022 PFL 3: Harrison vs. Mokhnatkina predictions

The PFL kicks off its third event at the Esports Stadium Arlington tonight with champ Kayla Harrison and opponent Marina Mokhnatkina in the spotlight.

All fighters made weight and are ready to go. In particular, defending women’s lightweight champion Kayla Harrison and welterweight champion Ray Cooper III begin their quests for their third consecutive titles tonight.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD

LARISSA PACHECO (15-4-0) VS. ZAMZAGUL FAYZALLANOVA (7-1-0)

Andrews: “Fay” is making her PFL debut. She looks like a good challenge and dangerous but I have to give the advantage to Larissa to get the six points.

Andrews Prediction: Larissa Pacheco via TKO

RORY MACDONALD (22-8-1) VS. BRETT COOPER (28-15-0)

Andrews: Rory is 32 years old! He needs to start strong with a win. Cooper, 34, won his debut and is dangerous but MacDonald should be able to get the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Rory MacDonald  via UD

ANTHONY PETTIS (24-12-0) VS.  MYLES PRICE (11-7-0)

Andrews: At 35, Pettis is no longer “Showtime.” This should be another laboured bout. And I think Price steals this fight.

Andrews Prediction: Myles Price via UD

RAY COOPER III (24-7-1) VS. CARLOS LEAL MIRANDA (16-3-0)

Andrews: A dangerous fight on paper. Cooper needs to be prepared, but he just missed weight! Disappointing. He came in at 176. 4 pounds, wow. An embarrassed Cooper should win the fight though.

Andrews Prediction: Ray Cooper III via TKO

MAIN EVENT

KAYLA HARRISON (12-0-0) VS. MARINA MOKHNATKINA (6-2-0)

Andrews: Harrison has been on fire but this is the best time for Marin to surprise her. But in the end, Kayla gets it done.

Andrews Prediction: Kayla Harrison via TKO

Enjoy the fights.
