Former Strikeforce 135-pound women’s champion Sarah Kaufman signs with the Canadian-based promotion, Armageddon Fighting Championships. She is scheduled to make her debut on April 2nd in her hometown of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada at Armageddon Fighting Championships 5, against an opponent to be named at a later date.
Kaufman is still under contract with Strikeforce, but the promotion is allowing her to compete elsewhere as they build up competitors for her in her weight class.
Sarah Kaufman began her career a perfect 12-0, and was considered to be one of the world’s top pound-for-pound female fighters in all of mixed martial arts. She became Strikeforce’s first ever women’s 135-pound champion following her unanimous decision victory over Takayo Hashi back in February of last year. In her next fight, Kaufman put women’s MMA on the map with her vicious knockout slam victory over Roxanne Modafferi on the Strikeforce Challengers 9 card. Unfortunately in her big show debut, she was upset by Marloes Coenen with a third round armbar last October.
