Kayla Harrison’s ability to make weight has been an topic ever since her bantamweight UFC debut was announced. The physically strong former Olympic medalist used to compete at lightweight and needs to drop two weight classes ahead of UFC 300 in April.

Her opponent, former bantamweight champ Holly Holm expects Harrison to make weight or the fight is off.

“I’m on the stance that you need to make weight. That’s just how it is,” Holm stated at the MMA Hour. “I think her mindset should be ‘I’m going to make weight’ because she took the fight at 135.”

“It’s hard to say with her because she’s never had to fight at this weight before, so we’ll see what happens.”

“Be professional about it and make weight and we’ll be ready to rock and roll.”

Champ claims weight cut will be a problematic for Kayla Harrison

Former bantamweight champion Meisha Tate, who held the title in 2016 after defeating Holm, recently claimed that the weight cut will be a problem for Kayla Harrison.

“When I saw it was at 135, I was shocked, because Kayla Harrison begged for 155-pound division at PFL, and she got it and I think she’s been great there. I know she’s made 145 before. I think it was tough for her. I think 135 is going to really suck the life out of her, and it’s not the best move,” Tate said in an interview with SiriusXM.
