Sarah Kaufman is headed to Invicta FC, will debut in January
Sarah Kaufman is the best female fighter not currently in the UFC.
I was really excited today to learn that one of my favorite fighters has signed with one of my favorite promotions. Sarah Kaufman will be heading back to Invicta to fight for the all-female organization. Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp has rolled with the punches as her talent is consistently moving up to the UFC. She continues to put on marvelous events and present a tremendous product.
Sarah Kaufman is as talented a fighter as there is in the sport. She possesses an impressive 18-4 record and her losses are to some of the elite. She’s dropped bouts to Marloes Coenen, Ronda Rousey, and Valentina Shevchenko. In her last fight, she defeated Jessica Rose-Clark. Rose-Clark recently debuted for the UFC and bested Bec Rawlings. Sarah holds victories over fighters like Shayna Baszler, Roxanne Modafferi, Liz Carmouche and Miesha Tate.
Sarah previously competed in Invicta defeating Leslie Smith before being signed by the UFC. I contacted her to find out if she was happy to be returning to the Invicta FC organization. Here’s what she said to me.
“Yes I’m pretty stoked to have a promotion that is so fighter focused. I truly believe Invicta cares about their fighters and does as much as they can to help develop and promote them. It sounds like I will be headlining the card Jan 13 but the opponent is yet to be determined.”
She’s pretty anxious to find out who she’ll be fighting as she doesn’t have a ton of time to get ready for someone specific since she’s competing in five weeks. She also wants people to know she’s coming to take heads and finish her fights. She had the following to say about any potential opponents.
“I’d definitely like to know sooner than later, but I will be ready regardless of who it is. It’s time for me to show everyone the finisher that I am…no more decisions or playing nice in there. I’m the best there is and I need to remind the world of that with this next performance.”
Here’s hoping she’s successful in that endeavor. I will most certainly be watching.
