    Kayla Harrison pretty much got a free million dollars by defeating cans in PFL and she’s getting another free ride to another million this ‘season’ against more cans.

    sHE pretty much getting these bags handed to her with little to no resistance

    Palmer won 2 tournaments too, right?

    It is an interesting concept, not sure it works so well with top heavy WMMA.

    They have backers.

    Their financial journey the last 3 years has been fascinating to watch in real time. They almost went bankrupt multiple times, worked their way out of it multiple times. Their last investment was huge...and most think they'll lose it.

    PFL hoping they can build their own stars I guess

    Don't think the pay off is there for WMMA though

    Do you think Kayla has what it takes to be a star? She said she wants to be respected for her fighting and not her looks

    they also pay fighters pennies. if you lose early in there so called season you dont fight again the rest of the season.

    this is why she not leave for the ufc.

    ive also said the money is paid out in payments over time.

    in the whole time they always been top heavy. when the wsof folded it was cause all of ali guys were paid over the top money an they had to drop them all. david branch was making 250-400k with wsof
