Hot Summer is comming to female 135 division
Posted by koolpaw on May 8, 2009
Undefeated Sarah Kaufamn is going to step in the cage against Miesha Tate, the winner of US Grappling (FILA) national trial 2008, for the right to challenge the Queen of Spade Shayna Baszler.
This is good move of Strikeforce to makeup last mess. Once bodogFight had built a very tough and serious league of female division at 135 lbs. Amanda, Shayna, Akano, Julie Kedzie, Kelly Kobold and Roxanne Modafferi. All those tough and skilled fighter were gunning at “the Queen” Tara LaRosa. Just b4 the moment of death of bodogFIGHT, New breed Kaitlin Young was added on the list. Another unknown veteran fighter Sarah Schnider`s name was also spreaded for Fighting and winning over Young.
Talents and competition were already there, just they lost the place to show their skills. Why dont major orgs use them for their events? Its often said that “female bout steals the event/show”.
Forget about Godzilla vs. KingKong, its not an athletic competistion. If you realy think of this sport, just focus on other talents who NEVER Cheat, Never Miss the weight. Now Roxanne Modafferi is ready to fight in that tough league as one of TOP 135ers and wants to fight to avenge Shayna badly.
But I think that Kaufman and Tate should be able to relax and take it easy for a while after putting on the exciting fight May 15th. I will gladly face Shayna for them. It’s really no problem at all.
In fact, Shayna chicken winged me in BODOG a few years ago.
I want revenge.
I believe I can win. I don’t want an easy fight…I want a war. Will you go to war with me in the cage, Shayna?
Its also a war between 2 Generations, current top fighters and future queens like Kaufman, Young and Tate. You know what? There are so many tough competitors at ths Class. Tonya Evenger,Takayo Hashi, Molly Helsel, Ginele Marquez, Liz Posener, Jan Finny… the list is looong.
