What have the stars of PFL 3 said?
Former UFC champion Werdum is relishing his promotional debut, saying: “I want to put one more belt on my wall, my motivation is that I love this.”
Vai Cavalo is expecting a short night at the office, adding: “I see a knockout or submission very quickly, this is my goal.
“PFL has points, I love the rules and I want 6 points. This is why I signed with PFL, I like the idea of 4 fights in a very short time.
“If you deserve it you go forward, nobody else has these rules, you win and you go forward and win 1 million dollars.”
Two-time Olympic gold medallist Harrison said: “My confidence, my striking is coming along and I feel more developed as a fighter.
“I’m not afraid to hit or get hit any more and that makes me dangerous.
“Overall I’m a lot more comfortable and at ease inside a cage and that helps me to implement my game even more dominantly which, if that’s possible, is scary.”
