Kaufman wants Tate who wants Carano


UFC women's bantamweight top 5 contenders:
1. Cat Zingano
2. Alexis Davis
3. Miesha Tate
4. Sara McMann
5. Sarah Kaufman

Sarah Kaufman and Miesha Tate both lost to champion Ronda Rousey, and both need a fight. Kaufman, who holds a 2009 decision win over Tate when both were in Strikeforce, wants to do it again.

Kaufman knows what she wants, and she knows when and where - UFC 174 on June 14 in her home province of  British Columbia.

Sarah Kaufman @mmasarah
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!—

However, Tate recently appeared on UFC Tonight with Chael Sonnen and Kenny Florian, and was asked who she wants to fight next.

"I would love a fight with Gina Carano," said Tate. "Honestly, you know, she’s going to make her comeback to MMA after five and a half years, and I don’t think it makes sense to go straight for the title. So, I think I’d be a great matchup for her to come back on."

What do you think UG? What is your ideal next fight for:
1. Sarah Kaufman
2. Miesha Tate
3. Gina Carano

I think Meisha Tate vs Gina Carano is definitely a eyeball loving matchup. However that would mean Carano risking a huge payday down the road with Ronda Rousey if she loses. But Gina Carano is far too big a name to come back against someone with lesser name recognition. This is your Ace in the hole. To get maximum bang for your buck you have to match her up against someone with equal or similar public pull, and that is Meisha Tate. She's available and she's asking for the fight, so I think that's a good matchup. The weighin would be the most heavily attended in UFC history.

I guess Carano is the female everyone has to call out. The men are only allowed to call out McGregor, Bisping or a Diaz brother

I have to really agree with this. Meisha was going for Takedowns time and time again and getting thrown that is just crazy. I felt her striking improved a bit in the Zingano fight. Meisha was actually lighting Cat up the first round and second too iirc. Against Liz it didn't look to good. I also felt like she just let Ronda get that armbar and just gave up. Let other girls have a go. Bethe is climbing up.

Sarah was in a car accident last night. At the time she said she was OK, but a little sore. Hopefully it does not impede her training.Sarah Kaufman ?@mmasarah 11hThanks for the concern. I'm a bit sore but no major injuries. Probably sore tomorrow morning though. More pissed than anything.
