Ronda Rousey vs. Sarah Kaufman slated for Aug. 18 in San Diego

Quote:
As expected Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (5-0 MMA, 3-0 SF) will look to defend her title against former champ Sarah Kaufman (15-1 MMA, 6-1 SF) in late summer.

The title fight, which Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker tentatively confirmed this past month, takes place Aug. 18 in San Diego.

MMAjunkie.com www.mmajunkie.com today confirmed the date and location, which MMAFighting.com first reported.

The event, which includes a main card on Showtime and prelims on Showtime Extreme, likely will take place at Valley View Casino Center, which has hosted two previous Strikeforce shows.

Rousey recently won the title with a first-round armbar-submission victory over rival Miesha Tate in March. In eight fights (three amateur and five professional), the Olympic bronze-medal judoka has yet to see the second round. She had submitted all of her opponents with armbars.

Recently, the fan favorite has been busy with a host of PR commitments. In April, she lobbied on behalf of Strikeforce parent company Zuffa to legalize MMA in New York, and she's expected to appear this fall in ESPN's "The Body Issue."

Kaufman, meanwhile, will be one of Rousey's stiffest tests yet. She looks for her fourth straight win since losing her belt to Marloes Coenen (who later lost it to Tate) in 2010. The heavy-handed Canadian recently has defeated the likes of Megumi Yabushita, Liz Carmouche and Alexis Davis to earn a shot to reclaim the title. Ten of her 15 career wins have come via knockout.

Yeah, I don't know who half of these guys on the main card are. Something tells me that Strikeforce maybe winding down. After all their current contract only goes until the end of this year I think.
