The full PFL Playoffs 2 card, which transpires on August 19, has been announced. And not surprisingly, promotional darling Kayla Harrison is set to headline the event.

Harrison (10-0), the PFL women’s lightweight champion in 2019, is set to take on Genah Fabian in the PFL Playoffs 2 main event. Harrison has won both her fights this season, both via first round stoppage. In her last outing, she submitted veteran Cindy Dandois via arm-bar.

Fabian (4-1) has also won both of her fights this season. In her last appearance, she took out Julija Pajić via TKO in the second round.

Also on the card on August 19 is 2019 runner-up Larissa Pacheco. Like Harrison, Brazil’s Pacheco (15-4) found first-round finishes in both of her regular season fights this year. Guardado (2-1), who competed in Invicta’s Phoenix Series bantamweight tournament last year, winning two exhibition bouts before losing in the finale, won both her regular season appearances for the PFL via decision.

Should Pacheco and Harrison both get their hands raised later this month, it will set up a trilogy fight, and rematch of the 2019 women’s lightweight finale. Currently, Harrison holds the lead in the pair’s career series at 2-0.

Heavyweight semifinals will also take place on the card. The full line-up, announced Tuesday via press release, can be found below.
