A Strikeforce 135-pound match pitting two of MMA's top female stars is being targeted for a July 22 Challengers Series card, MMA Fighting has learned.
Sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed that a bout pitting former champion Sarah Kaufman against Liz Carmouche is in the works, and has been verbally agreed to.
The 25-year-old Kaufman hasn't fought in Strikeforce since losing the belt to Marloes Coenen back in October 2010. Afterward, she took a fight in a Canadian promotion to stay active, defeating Megumi Yabushita via TKO. Article
