Serrano will be the latest addition to the PFL’s ‘super fight’ division, which is expected to debut in 2024. Signees such as Francis Ngannou, Jake Paul, and two-time PFL champion Kayla Harrison are expected to be featured in the division’s launch.
Serrano is 2-0-1 in her MMA career with wins in promotions such as Combate and iKON. She hasn’t fought in MMA since a first-round submission win in June 2021.

Serrano’s debut opponent has yet to be determined but could be announced in the coming months.
Serrano’s boxing tenure makes her one of the top female boxers in the sport’s history. She is 44-2-1 in the ring and will defend her featherweight titles this weekend against Heather Hardy.
Serrano is also looking for another potential boxing match with Katie Taylor; the pound-for-pound No. 1 female boxer in the world. A rematch could still take place despite Serrano’s signing with the PFL.
Serrano will look to defeat Hardy on Saturday before looking ahead to her next move in MMA. The PFL continues to make big strides in 2023 as it looks to continue to innovate and add top talent.
