Kayla Harrison's Brutal Diss on Cyborg

The UFC's latest acquisition, Kayla Harrison, is preparing to make a splash in her promotional debut by taking on former women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm at UFC 300 in April. Harrison, a former PFL tournament winner, is eager to make her mark in the UFC and has set her sights on a title shot.

Holm, known as "The Preacher's Daughter," is looking to bounce back from a no-contest bout with Mayra Bueno Silva last summer and is hoping a win over Harrison will put her back in contention for another title shot. To aid in her preparation, Holm has been training with current Bellator women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg at Jackson Wink in New Mexico.

The decision to train with Holm comes amid a heated rivalry between Cyborg and Harrison, with talks of a potential fight between the two in the PFL and Bellator never coming to fruition. Now, with Harrison signed to the UFC, it appears that a showdown between the two may never happen unless Cyborg decides to return to the promotion.

During a fan Q&A session at the UFC 300 press conference, Harrison was asked about Cyborg's decision to train with Holm. The former PFL star didn't hold back, dismissing Cyborg's actions as mere attempts to stir up controversy.

"Who?" Harrison responded when asked about Cyborg. "Come on, she just loves to stir the f*cking pot, doesn't she? Just go home already, nobody cares."

Despite her disdain for Cyborg, Harrison holds Holm in high regard, referring to her as a legend in the sport. She sees her upcoming bout with Holm as a stepping stone towards her ultimate goal of winning a UFC title and finishing her career on top.

"Of course, I don't use the word 'legend' lightly but I think Holly is a legend in the sport," Harrison said. "She's been in the top ten for years now, and been a former champ. So I didn't come over here just to see how I can do and fight amongst everyone. I'm here to come over and win a UFC title and finish my career on top. Holly's a good start to that."
