"I'm extremely embarrassed by my performance," Kaufman told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I knew Ronda coming in was a world-class athlete and a world-class judo player. I didn't underestimate her at all – I knew she was going to be a tough fight. I'm embarrassed I wasn't able to do what I wanted to do and land the strikes I wanted to land."

Kaufman said she hopes Strikeforce matchmaker Sean Shelby, as well as CEO Scott Coker, can put something together for her to get back quickly – and start building her way back to a title fight

Well Sarah had little to no time at all to enforce any of her game plan, as Ronda swarmed her within seconds.

Ronda had the perfect gameplan. If she held back at all, Kaufman would have lit her up. Sarah fought really hard to get that arm free, and for a moment I thought she did, but all for not. I'd like to see a rematch next year. As convincing as a 55 second finish is, it still doesn't answer any questions we have about Rousey's game

She'll be back. I'd like to see her fight Julie Kedzie next. I see that fight being a war.

that trip by ronda was seriously high level. im willing to bet that sarah had never seen anything like that in a fight. it almost looked like ronda had botched that throw and sarah kind of had a good position on her, but as an olympic caliber judo player, ronda had no problem. i think if sarah had a chance to tee-off on ronda, it could have gone different.

either way, at least we are possibly one step closer to a female superfight between ronda and cyborg.

The division doesn't really have much so she could win 1 fight and be back in all honesty
