Kayla Harrison doesn't even need a full round to finish off Kaitlin Young at PFL 6. (0:55)

Kayla Harrison's quest for a third PFL championship is very much alive following a first-round finish over Kaitlin Young on Friday night in the main event at PFL 6 in Atlanta.

Harrison (14-0) won the 155-pound bout via TKO at 2:35 of the opening round, solidifying the No. 2 seed in the PFL playoffs.

Brazilian Larissa Pacheco (17-4) seized the No. 1 spot with finishes in 2022 over Zamzagul Fayzallanova and Genah Fabian.

Harrison has already beaten Pachedo twice in the PFL in 2019, but Pacheco will enter the playoffs ahead of Harrison.

Martina Jindrova will go into the 2022 playoffs as the No. 3 seed, while Ukraine's Olena Kolesnyk will enter as the No. 4 seed.

In the welterweight division, Rory MacDonald (23-9-1) dropped a unanimous decision to Sadibou Sy in the co-main event Friday but still retained the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.
