Strikeforce women’s bantamweight contender, and former title holder, Sarah Kaufman takes a shot at champion Ronda Rousey in this video saying that it’s “hard workers who put in their time get to the top, not people who just talk and run their mouth.” Rousey had never competed at 135-lbs before and talked her way into a title match with Miesha Tate over Kaufman, so there is bound to be some bitterness there from the Canadian. Rousey, to her credit, backed up all of her talk by finishing Tate for the title. Now Kaufman and Rousey are set to collide this summer on August 18 in San Diego.
Also featured in this video training with Kaufman is former Strikeforce women’s featherweight champ Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos, who may be looking to make her own statement in the women’s bantamweight division following her suspension which will end this coming December. This is certainly a message to Rousey, that if she defeats Kaufman, then she’ll have to deal with ‘Cyborg’ next.
