Anthony Pettis grabs $750k in submission loss to Stevie Ray at PFL 5

It wasn’t all that long ago that Kayla Harrison was on the free agency market looking to cash in on the celebrity status afforded her by two Olympic gold medals, and a nice, shiny unbeaten 12-0 MMA record. It didn’t hurt her negotiating power that she’d already collected two million-dollar paydays from her time in the Professional Fighters League and the pair of tournament titles that came with it.

For a potentially high priced, high profile contender, a jump over to Bellator or even the UFC seemed highly possible. It was a little bit of a surprise then, when she landed right back where she started, fighting under the PFL banner.
