The women take the featured spot at Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers VI event.
Although the Feb. 26 event initially was announced with a headliner of Karl Amoussou vs. Trevor Prangley, Strikeforce officials on Monday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that a fight between Takayo Hashi and Sarah Kaufman instead has taken the main-event slot.
The 135-pound fighters compete for Strikeforce’s first-ever female bantamweight title.
Strikeforce Challengers VI takes place at the San Jose Civic Auditorium in San Jose, Calif. A five-fight main card, which features Amoussou vs. Prangley in the co-headliner, airs on Showtime. The night’s preliminary card features a middleweight bout of Eric Lawson vs. Wayne Phillips and six amateur bouts.
This so rocks! congrats Kaufman and Hashi for making the main event headline!!
