Now that tickets for “Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman” have officially hit the box offices, it’s time for the UFC’s little brother to start filling out the event’s roster. On Tuesday night, the mixed martial arts promotion diligently announced a pair of scraps to the August 18th extravaganza.
Former Strikeforce middleweight champ Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (Pictured) takes on Derek Brunson, while Tarec Saffiedine battles Roger Bowling.
Both bouts will likely appear in the show’s main card. However, only three fights have been reported for the lineup thus far so that could change depending upon how the rest of the roster rounds out.
Bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey puts her crown on the line against Sarah Kaufman in the event’s featured attraction.
Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California hosts the festivities.
Showtime will broadcast the main card beginning at 10PM ET/PT.
Here is the card’s current roster:
Tarec Saffiedine vs. Roger Bowling
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Derek Brunson
Sarah Kaufman vs. Ronda Rousey (Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion)
