Tomorrow 10 PM EST on Showtime. I've seen the lines go as high as +475 on Kaufman. Sarah (15-1) is more experienced and is a better all around fighter. Absent a quick armbar, I wouldn't be shocked to see SK walk away with a victory.
Ronda punched her way into the clinch, secured a takedown, and then worked relentlessly for the armbar. Kaufman showed good technical defense, but Ronda latched on like a pitbull. Every opponent knows its coming, but no one has been able to stop her. Six fights, six armbar submission victories, all in the first round. Much respect!

I'm waiting for the critics to come out with "one trick pony" argument...I have the counter ready when they do...And I would love to see the parking lot brawl between "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey and Chris "Cyborg" Santos...
Rowdy Ronda Rousey does it again. She is for real. No doubt about it.

Each fight for Rousey is a stepping stone to making her a better fighter overall. Training with Ceaser Gracie and the Diaz brothers will only make her a better BJJ player. Training with the Diaz brothers' boxing coach will helper be a better stand-up fighter. The wrestling, the judo, everything is making her a more complete fighter. The same can be said for Kaufman, who is still a great fighter. No one is immune to having a bad night or getting caught. Kaufman may not have looked great but she is not done. Heck, Tate looked great in her bout on the pre-show. Some great fighters here. As for Cyborg, she needs to finish her suspension and drop down to fight Rousey. Cyborg is the one with something to prove coming off a drug suspension.
