What would you do if you won $1 million? Well, Kayla Harrison‘s got the money … and some ideas on how to spend it.
Harrison — one of the biggest stars in MMA — beat Larissa Pacheco and won this year’s PFL tournament … which comes with an over-sized million dollar check.
So, we hit her up and asked how she’s gonna spend the money … and she’s considering using part of the big ass check to honor her father.
“My dad passed away a while ago and he used to love fixing up old American muscle cars. So, the last car he had that he really wanted to fix up when I was a kid was a ’69 Camaro. So I’ve kind of been rolling around the idea of getting a Camaro.”
Kayla says her dad actually unloaded his favorite old -school muscle car back in the day to get her, her bro and sis some quads … so copping the Camaro would be special for her and her family.
“I just remember [the Camaro] from being a kid. He was fixing it up and he actually sold it to buy me and my brother and sister four-wheelers for Christmas. So I was like damn I need to get that Camaro in his memory.”
That’s not all … Kayla — who also says she’s gonna donate a bunch of the cash to her Fearless Foundation — says winning the money (and the tournament) is literally a dream come true.
“I feel good, life is good, I’m happy. Damn, I’m blessed. Like are you kidding me? I never thought that in a million years that, a million no pun intended, I never thought in a million years that I’d be making millions of dollars doing what I love.”
“I’ve come a long way from that 16-year-old girl with $200 in her pocket, to a millionaire by 30. What the hell. Dreams do come true.”
But, she isn’t done … Harrison says she’s gunnin’ for the million-dollar prize again next year.
