Kaufman Puts Tate on Blast

Strikeforce Challengers: Voelker v Bowling III
“I get that Ronda (Rousey) is the goal and Ronda is my goal, but we can’t get there without fights. For these girls to try and take safe fights and ensure they don’t have a high chance of losing and they get these records where they have 10 wins in the UFC but they are all against the bottom half of the group. You need to fight people who have big names and who are higher ranked than you. You don’t move up by twiddling your thumbs and just calling out Ronda on Twitter. That’s not how it should be, and it’s a little bit cowardly for that to be the way that it’s going. Miesha and I have exchanged on Twitter before and she’ll seemingly answer every other person on Twitter, that’s how she got the (Sara) McMann fight, that’s how she was talking about getting a Bethe (Correia) fight, and supposedly she called me out in April, saying after her fight with Liz Carmouche she wanted one of three people — Sarah Kaufman, Holly Holm or Gina Carano. Well, I said, ‘Sweet, let’s do it.’ This would be an awesome fight. She can take a beating, and I’m happy to give her one. As soon as I went online, she disappeared. No response whatsoever. It’s insane, and the only thing it comes down to is if she’ll fight everyone in the division but me, that makes you a coward. It’s as simple as that. Why wouldn’t you want that fight back?”

During a new interview with FOX Sports, Former Strikeforce champ Sarah Kaufman talks about her desire to fight Miesha Tate.

Tate is arguably the second biggest female draw in the sport today.
