Sarah Kaufman has her eyes on a fight, we just don’t know which one it will be. Kaufman spoke about a possible fight with Cat Zingano or Miesha Tate.
On a possible rematch with Miesha Tate?
“She’s said in, I don’t know, at least three interviews that I’ve seen where she’s been on camera saying she wants Gina Carano, Holly Holm or Sarah Kaufman. Gina Carano, at this point, isn’t around. Holly Holm is injured and both of them aren’t signed to the UFC at this point. “‘You’ll be waiting,’ and that’s all I said. You’ve said you want this fight, why would you now go back on that or why would you pretend that you haven’t said that when you said it quite a few times?,” Kaufman wondered. “Either it’s something you want or it’s something you don’t want, but say so either way. If you say my name just to say, but really I’m the last on your list because you don’t want to get knocked out, well, don’t say my name then.”
Sarah Kaufman has ten knockout victories, and 7 decision victories in her MMA career. Prior to joining the UFC she has a 3-1 record and made her debut against Jessica Eye in October of 2013 which that fight was turned into a no contest. In her latest fight, she beat Leslie Smith in April of this year and won via Unanimous Decision.
Her thoughts on a possible fight Cat Zingano?
“I could see that they’re trying to save her for sure, but I don’t know, if it was me coming into a fight, yes, maybe the title shot right off the bat, but you haven’t fought in over a year. She’s gone through a lot in her personal life as well, as well as the rehab. I would think that she’d want to get back in there and get a feel for it again. Maybe that’s just my thoughts. They might save her, but with Ronda already fighting in July, she’s probably not going to fight again until at least the late fall, early winter. Does Cat really want to sit out another six, seven months? As a fighter, I wouldn’t.
Cat Zingano has four knockouts, 3 submissions and 1 decision victories in her MMA career. She has never been finished in her MMA career.
“I’d want to take a fight. I think it’s always exciting to fight someone new and someone you haven’t before,” she said. “And I think that the Cat fight would be a really exciting fight. It’d be stand-up, it’d be wrestling, it’d be grappling, it’d be a full fight that the fans could get behind and really exciting to see.”
Zingano is undefeated and has one UFC fight under her belt, which was against Miesha Tate in April of 2013 where she beat her with a 3rd Rd TKO.
