Ronda Rousey On Facing Sarah Kaufman: ‘I’m Going To Try To Pound Her Face Into The Ground’

Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has one objective Saturday night when she faces Sarah Kaufman in the main event of Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman: to defend her title.

Rousey and Kaufman will serve as the main event to the card, which airs on Showtime from San Diego.

“I’m going to try to pound her face into the ground,” said Rousey, during a recent press conference. “And that has nothing to do with whether I like her or respect her. Every single time I come to fight, I pretend as if it is my little sister’s life depending on it and in that kind of situation, nobody can ever beat me.”

Rousey has become the focal point to women’s MMA, appearing on several TV shows and gracing the cover of ESPN The Magazine since winning the belt.

Now, she must defend the title for the first time against Kaufman, a former champion in the division.

“I see Sarah as an opponent and I’ve trained harder for this fight than any other fight before,” Rousey said. “I respect her so much and I’m not taking any chances.”

      Yo I agree with that shit. I miss Jim and Steve running the website. These articles are lame. I can’t remember the last time I left a comment on here.

    • Ed Lib

      there’s no feedback with the commentators and I also hear mma news on facebook before it’s aired on the website…

      • LeoLarios

        I’m just tired of the puny articles. I want more to read, and I want more feedback.

        • Dana Becker

          Thanks LeoLarios…..appreciate the feedback. I’ll make it more of an effort to be more responsive on the comments going forward as best I can.

          Thanks, and appreciate your views.
