Kayla Harrison earned her second consecutive PFL women’s lightweight title on Wednesday when she defeated Taylor Guardado in the 2021 PFL Championship main event.

Harrison (12-0) added another dominant win to her record and another $1 million to her bank account when she closed out the 2021 PFL season with a second-round submission win over Guardado (3-2) at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Resort in Hollywood, Fla.

With the win, Harrison concludes her PFL contract and is poised to enter free agency where PFL, Bellator and UFC are expected to vie for her services.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Harrison’s win over Guardado at 2021 PFL Championship.

I watched @KaylaH win her first @PFLMMA title live in-person, two years ago.

Rooting for her third straight title – and third million $ check – from my hotel room.

Go Kayla!

The first person to lead the dance is…Guardado, who lands a clean right hand on Harrison. It might be the hardest anyone’s hit Harrison in a while. They clinch shortly thereafter, and Harrison hits a takedown 25 seconds in. #PFLChampionship

One thing I appreciate about Harrison is she doesn’t play with her food. Typically just ends it asap

Harrison is already in side control, and her pass to mount is thwarted. Guardado is defending herself from strikes, until Harrison goes after a kimura. #PFLChampionship

Guardado was a 135 pound fighter in her last fight prior to joining the PFL tournament.

Just not sure what we’re learning about Harrison against these much smaller and overmatched opponents.

I feel sad for Taylor. But there’s no shame in losing to Kayla Harrison. She’s next level on the ground and in the clinch game. #PFLChampionship

I don’t know how Kayla Harrison would fare against top competition in either the UFC or Bellator, but in the PFL her work is clinical, and it’s time to move on after another title.

Unless, of course, she just wants to keep collection million-dollar checks.

Easy work for Kayla Harrison. Add another million in the bank. I’d love to see Harrison compete against Nunes or Cyborg.

I think that makes Taylor Guardado the only mixed martial artists to lose by armbar to Harrison and Ronda Rousey (amateur fight).

Pros and cons to tonight’s PFL tournament final:

Pros: The fights delivered, I like 3 fighters in the booth especially Sean O’Connell, and I’m warming up to the extra fight metrics.

Cons: The timing of this event sucked rocks. The amount of time between fights was ridiculous.
