Kayla Harrison, UFC 300 Star’s Body Transform Scared Her Fans, They Said: “Looks on death’s door”

Kayla Harrison, the star of UFC 300, looked absolutely unrecognizable after completing her first-ever cut to bantamweight.

During the historic card, which takes place early on Sunday morning at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the two-time Olympic gold medallist makes her octagon debut.

Holly Holm, the former 135-pound champion, will greet Harrison in the octagon and hope to use her as a springboard for a title chance.

This week, the former PFL star made the most weight loss of her career to reach the 136-pound bantamweight limit for non-title fights.

And as she put on weight, she looked like a totally different person from the boxer who landed in Sin City earlier this week.

The judoka appeared to have completely lost all of her body’s water, leaving her a shadow of her former self.

Her facial features were extremely haggard, and her normally enormous muscles appeared flat and thin.

Fans of mixed martial arts and the UFC from all across the world reacted quickly to Harrison’s difficult weight loss, with one commenting, “That looked painful.”

One more said, “So unhealthy.”

A second person remarked, “Looks on death’s door.”

A person said, “This must have been a difficult cut.”

Someone commented: “Glad she was able make the weight, but don’t have a clue how she’s gonna keep making 135 in future.”

Harrison was certain that her weight reduction would go off without a hitch, even though she had never dropped to bantamweight.

At the media day for UFC 300, she stated: “My weight is good, everything is dialled in,” a cool, calm and confident Harrison said.
