Despite being Strikeforce’s 135lbs. women’s champ, Sarah Kaufman can’t find her way off the Strikeforce Challengers series and onto a major Strikeforce card. And she’s sick of it.
Cookies and Man Parts… seem to be the 2 things that will get me on a main Strikeforce card…that and learning how to shake my assets… I am currently the Strikeforce Women’s Welterweight Champion…yet I fought for the title on a Challengers Card.
Now, I am set to defend said title against Roxanne Modafferi in just a few days – again – on a Challengers Card. I know that it’s going to be a fun and challenging fight…and I always welcome that. Roxanne has been around the sport for a long time and will come game to fight; however, I need to take this fight and make a statement.
That statement will be: I deserve to be on a main Strikeforce Card because I am a talented, exciting FEMALE fighter at 135lbs! I will NOT eat a ridiculous amount of cookies to make 145lbs JUST for the opportunity to be on a main card and growing man parts… well that would just be ridiculous :D
Kaufman pretty much nailed it. Fair or not, it seems signing up to be Cris Cyborg’s next victim is about the only way for a woman to get promoted on a major Strikeforce card these days.
