Harrison did an interview recently where she said PFL has to offer her life-changing money to keep her. 

I'm not sure what exactly her play is here, tbh. They pay her well on a per-fight basis, and they literally set-up a yearly million dollar tournament designed around her winning lmao. Not to mention the fact that, naturally, she is a lightweight. A female lightweight. No other company is gonna offer her the consistency and money that PFL does given her weight class.

What are her plays? Drops down to 145 for a one-off with Cyborg and maybe a fight against Nunes? 

She acts like she has options, and she doesn't. She goes to Bellator, there is literally one fight for her... and then what will she do? Nothing. She goes to the UFC, there is literally one fight for her potentially at 145 lbs... and then what will she do? Nothing. Except for maybe get thrown under the bus by Dana White on national TV as he claims she "doesn't wanna fight" because - shocker - she can't make 135 lbs. 

She can't healthily make 135, not a chance in hell, so her options are non-existent. The PFL gives her consistent fights at lightweight, something no other MMA organization on earth will be able to do. They bend over backwards to set up tournaments with as deep a pool as possible, essentially designed to gift her $1 million every year. On top of a decent fight purse per fight. 

I'm not sure what she is expecting to get elsewhere, but she'd be a damn fool to ever leave the PFL.
