With less than three weeks remaining before the bout, Strikeforce has started amping up their promotion of bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey’s August 18 title-defense against former title-holder Sarah Kaufman starting with a recently released preview.
Tagged with the line, “Form does not always follow function,” the clip shows Rousey and Kaufman in latex bodysuits before highlights kick in and a traditional face-off ensues. As might be expected from her “bad girl” reputation, Rousey’s outfit is appropriately black and features sunglasses with Kaufman’s pure white.
The 15-1 Kaufman will enter the upcoming bout with wins in her previous three outings including an exciting outpointing of Alexis Davis in March. Comparably, Rousey is unbeaten five fights into her MMA career with all of the victories involving an opening round Armbar.
The full preview for their fight can be seen below:
