Amid the stir Ronda Rousey caused with her outspoken persona and title-winning fight against Miesha Tate, UFC president Dana White recently wondered whether she would become the Lucia Rijker of MMA – a dominant champ on a too-small stage.

As Rousey prepares for her first title defense, Rijker can now weigh in on that question.

Rousey manager Darin Harvey today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion has enlisted the famed kickboxer and boxer as a coach.

Rousey (5-0 MMA, 3-0 SF) meets Sarah Kaufman (15-1 MMA, 6-1 SF) at "Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman," which takes place Aug. 18 at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. The event's main card airs live on Showtime while preliminary-card fights air on Showtime Extreme.
