Kaufman Wants Miesha Tate for UFC 174
Sarah Kaufman is usually pretty outspoken on Twitter and has made a decent name for herself for being a social media “big talker.” Yesterday, Kaufman used her highly monitored twitter account to call out Miesha Tate for a possible summer bout.
The week's about come to a close and I'm wondering, @MieshaTate how much time would you like to prepare? We both want it, fans want it too!

Kaufman (17-2) has been eager to get back in the Octagon since her first fight against Leslie Smith at the TUF Nations Finale. She has also expressed interest in fighting on the upcoming UFC 174 card on June 14th, as it takes place in her hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. So far, Tate, Liz Carmouche, and Cat Zingano have all been mentioned by Kaufman for a possible match-up, but Tate seems like the most likely option.
Tate (14-5) is coming off of a recent decision victory against Liz Carmouche at UFC on Fox 11 in Orlando, Florida. That fight was Tate’s first win in the octagon, and third fight over all, suffering losses to Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano.
