Undefeated fighter Sarah Kaufman will put her perfect record on the line at ”Strikeforce Challengers VI” on February 26th against 12-1 grappler Takayo Hashi in hopes of becoming the promotion’s first 135-pound female champion.
The hard-hitting Canadian broke the news to fans on Twitter earlier today.
Kaufman most recently scored decision-wins over Shayna Baszler and Miesha Tate in Strikeforce after racking up eight consecutive knockouts before entering the organization. Hashi will be making her Strikeforce debut at the event but is currently riding an eight-fight win streak.
It is currently expected that the last woman standing in Freestyle Cage Fighting‘s 135-pound tournament set for January 30th in Oklahoma will serve as the first challenger to whomever emerges victorious in the scrap.
