34. Kayla Harrison
Harrison was an Olympic judoka who unleashed carnage upon her opponents. Then she moved to MMA and took her violence to the next level. She became an elite fighter with the PFL and won millions of dollars. However, she came to the end of her deal with the promotion. This created one of the most interesting contract holdouts in the sport (via Marca).
Suitors included the UFC and Bellator because they had big opponents for her. The likes of Amanda Nunes and Cris Cyborg made sense as match-ups. Fans hoped she’d move because she reached her ceiling with the PFL. But there was a major anticlimax when she inked a new contract. It’s good for her because she makes lots of money and that’s what fighting is about.
