Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is focused on her match with former champion Sarah Kaufman on Saturday, August 18th, 2012. For all of the stardom that Ronda has achieved, she is in with a dangerous striker in Sarah. It will not be an easy defense. Ronda has yet to be pushed past the first round in any of her fights, submitting all of her opponents by way of her signature move, the armbar. Even should she beat Sarah I think this fight goes past one round. And if Ronda makes a mistake, Sarah will make her pay. All of that said, another voice in the women’s MMA world is chirping about fighting Ronda. That would be Cristiane Santos, aka Cyborg. Currently, Cyborg is serving a suspension for a positive steroid test. In my opinion, I think lots of MMA fans would like to see a Rousey vs Cyborg fight if Ronda gets by Kaufman. I want to see it. On the other hand, I don’t know if I want to see it right away. I think Cyborg has some credibility to rebuild. She needs to fight a few times, and more importantly pass every banned substance test they throw at her.
