Prelude to a throwdown.

Ronda Rousey and Sarah Kaufman went nose-to-nose earlier today (Aug. 16, 2012) at the conclusion of the Strikeforce: "Rousey vs. Kaufman" pre-fight press conference, which emanated from the Player's Lounge inside the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California.

There were hot bodies, but no hot tempers.

Rousey got a little "Rowdy" the last time she faced off with an opponent, and had the armbar to back it up the following night, but things remained civil in today's gathering, which centered on her 135-pound title defense against the former division champion.

The action gets underway this Saturday night (Aug. 18, 2012) at 10 p.m. ET live on Showtime.

MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the main card action on fight night, which is slated to air at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime. The latest quick updates of the under card action will begin to flow earlier than that around 8 p.m. ET with the "Prelims" bouts on SHO Extreme.
