Sarah Kaufman to battle Takayo Hashi for Strikeforce 135-pound title

Have to admit I’m excited about this: Sarah Kaufman will fight Takayo Hashi for the inaugural Strikeforce women’s 135-pound title on February 26. Kaufman made the announcement on her Facebook page just moments ago. The Victoria, BC, native is a strong striker with a solid ground game who’s accumulated a 10-0 record, including impressive wins over Shayna Baszler and Miesha Tate at back-to-back ShoMMA events last year. Her opponent is a 12-1 Smackgirl and ADCC vet. The two were originally supposed to meet at a Strikeforce: Challengers event last November.

This is very exciting news. I have watched Sarah develope her exceptional talents since she was 17 and when I look back to 2002 when we started training at Zuma, Sarah has, through total dedication, focus and love of our sport, shown us all how incredibly talented she is. I think of her as The Great White Ali. Look out Sarah opponents, cause you got another thing comin’!!!
