But there’s another woman fighter who has been nothing but dominant in her reign. Olympic gold medalist judoka, Kayla Harrison, has been on a tier in the PFL. The winner of the million-dollar tournament, Harrison, is undefeated in her MMA career. And thus, his manager Ali Abdelaziz wants to pit her against a former EliteXC & Strikeforce veteran and a Hollywood star.

In an interview with Fox News, ‘Conviction’ kept the door open for a Rousey fight. Thus, Abdelaziz tweeted another option for Carano if she wants to fight someone other than Rousey.

“This is song OK I would love to see @ginacarano come to PFL and fight @KaylaH can you guys make this happen @SugarRaySefo @PeteMurrayPFL @DonnDavisPFL,” wrote Ali Abdelaziz.

Though Carano didn’t shut the Rousey fight completely, she wanted to do other business with ‘Rowdy’ than fighting, as she even proposed a ‘job’ for her.

It would be interesting to see whether ‘Conviction’ addresses this offer from the Dominance management team representative. Besides, it will be intriguing to see how would Kayla Harrison react to it?

But if she makes a transition, it would take a lot of time out of her schedule, as she can’t just jump in against elite competition. Chiefly, against Kayla Harrison, who is active and is one of the most dominant fighters at the moment.

Whereas Rousey, though, is active in the WWE, she’s been out from the Octagon for around five years. Thus, she would be a relatively easier matchup for Carano than Harrison. Besides, Rousey is smaller than Harrison.
