Kayla Harrison ready to prove herself to Dana White
Kayla Harrison is going through a complicated period during her free agency. Many promotions have expressed interest and that includes Dana White and the UFC.
Kayla Harrison is also expecting a hefty payday from whoever signs her. This means she would be quite the investment for any promotion, including one as big as the UFC.
She recently sat down with MMAFighting and discussed a variety of topics, including Dana White and the UFC. Kayla Harrison is ready to prove herself no matter what.
“Dana has said a lot of things before,” Harrison said. “It’s my job. If I want to fight in the UFC someday, if I want to fight at featherweight for the UFC some day, then it’s my job to prove to him that I’m worth the investment and I’m worth the risk.
“All I can do is to continue to go out there and be so dominant and continue be so good that you can’t ignore me. I know that I’ll do that. He says a lot of stuff and I know that I’m going to make him eat his words and he’ll smile when he does it and it will be great. I’m not worried about it. That time is coming.”
Whatever happens, Kayla Harrison is not worried. UFC or not, she has a big future in front of her.
“He’s great at his job,” Harrison said about White. “He freaking started the sport basically. So it’s like who am I to tell him how to do what he does best? I’m not going to sit here and say ‘oh he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, he’s this and he’s that, and he has no idea and I’m different.’ I’m just going to show him.
“Then he’ll see and then he’ll do what he does and it will be great. I’m not worried about it. I’m really not.”
Kayla Harrison could find herself in the UFC in no time at all. 2022 will be her opportunity to make the next decision.
