Sarah Kaufman vs. Liz Carmouche at Strikeforce Challengers 17 on July 22nd

135 pound female contenders, Sarah Kaufman and Liz Carmouche will go head to head at the Strikeforce Challengers 17 card scheduled for July 22nd in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be the first of the ‘Challengers’ series to be held in the city after Zuffa made the decision to hold all upcoming cards in ‘Sin City’.

Kaufman was last seen in Strikeforce in October 2010 when she lost her 135lb title to Marloes Coenen but the former champ returned to her winning ways more recently with a TKO stoppage of Megumi Yabushita in the minor leagues.

Carmouche was unbeaten when she too faced Coenen in March this year on short notice and the rookie dominated the champion for much of the fight only to get snagged in a triangle choke in the fourth round.
