UFC’s Sarah Kaufman Calling for Bout With Miesha Tate
By FCF Staff
Following her decision win over Leslie Smith at the TUF Nations Finale, Sarah Kaufman has an opponent in mind for her next fight, and it’s fellow bantamweight contender Miesha Tate.
Kaufman, who like Tate is a former Strikeforce champion, relayed her wish via Twitter recently by saying:
The week's about come to a close and I'm wondering, @MieshaTate how much time would you like to prepare? We both want it, fans want it too!

Tate, meanwhile, is coming off a UD win over Liz Carmouche at UFC on FOX 11.
Kaufman and Tate fought under the Strikeforce banner in 2009, and Kaufman won the bout via unanimous decision.
Tate is currently ranked #3 in the UFC’s 135 pound division, while Kaufman is positioned at #5.
