After her third-round knockout win over Roxanne Modafferi in July, Strikeforce 135-pound women's champion Sarah Kaufman said she should be fighting on one of Strikeforce's main card, not in a Challengers event.
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker listened to Kaufman and now her second title defense, against Dutch fighter Marloes Coenen, said she should be fighting on one of Strikeforce's main card, not in a Challengers event.
"It's definitely where the title fight should be and we should be getting main-card slots," said Kaufman during a conference call Friday to promote the event. "People should be seeing us. I'm glad to be fighting on the bigger cards. I have to thank Showtime, Strikeforce and the fans who pushed for this."
