Kayla Harrison is the only Judo Olympian from the USA to have won a Gold medal. And now she’s baring her teeth. She was quoted saying the following:

Khabib famously isn’t too crazy about women fighting having said:

Harrison is expected to face Larissa Pacheco in the opening round of PFL’s million dollar eight-woman lightweight tournament, which kicks off tomorrow night, May 9 in New York.
