Kaufman vs Modafferi Targeted for July 23
Roxanne Modafferi could challenge Sarah Kaufman for her Strikeforce Women’s Welterweight title as early as July 23. Strikeforce President Scott Coker told MMAJunkie that executives are busy trying to get this fight signed for a Strikeforce Challengers card in Everett, Washington.
The undefeated Strikeforce champion Kaufman (11-0) challenged Roxanne Modafferi (15-5) to fight for the Strikeforce title immediately after Modafferi topped Tara Larosa. Modafferi has fought once for Strikeforce in a losing effort when she moved up in weight on short notice to fight Marloes Coenen.
This is great news for British Columbia fight fans as Everett is within two hours of Vancouver (a few more from Kaufman’s Victoria hometown).
