Strikeforce Books Sarah Kaufman vs. Takayo Hashi Title Fight
Filed under: Strikeforce
Less than four weeks after Strikeforce 145-pound women’s champion Cris Cyborg defends her title against Marloes Coenen, the promotion will crown its second women’s champion with a 135-pound bout between Sarah Kaufman and Takayo Hashi.
Kaufman vs. Hashi has been penciled in for the February 26 Strikeforce Challengers show. Strikeforce promoter Scott Coker told Loretta Hunt of Sherdog that he expected to promote a Kaufman-Hashi 135-pound title fight, and Showtime later announced the February 26 bout on its web site.
