Strikeforce bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey charged at Sarah Kaufman, avoided a trip takedown and locked in an armbar.
Less than a minute into their main event fight Saturday night, Rousey was standing inside the cage with her title going back around her waist.
Rousey improved to 6-0, with all six wins coming in the first round via armbar submission. So, what’s next?
“I have a challenge to Ms. (Cris) Cyborg out there,” Rousey said. “I’m the champion now. The champion doesn’t go to you, you got to the champion. Come down to 135.”
Cyborg is currently under suspension, but it has been mentioned that Strikeforce would attempt to do a match between the two when the suspension is over.
On this night, it was all Rousey once again. She was relentless in not releasing the armbar as Kaufman tried to roll out of it several times.
“I have great coaches and I listened to what they said,” Rousey said.
