Rising star Kayla Harrison will look to improve to 3-0 before the end of the year.

Harrison will meet Moriel Charneski (3-4) at PFL 11 on Dec. 31 in New York City, sources told ESPN. The fight will take place at 155 pounds.

Harrison, the two-time Olympic gold medalist in Judo, won her professional MMA debut in June and followed it up with another victory in August. She's considered one of the brightest young stars in female MMA.
