Strikeforce returned to Showtime this past Saturday night (Aug. 18, 2012) with "Rousey vs. Kaufman," featuring Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey defending her title for the first time by submitting Sarah Kaufman just 54 seconds into the first round with an armbar.
Ronaldo Souza also made short work of his opponent, sending Derek Brunson off to La La Land in just 41 seconds. It was the first legitimate knockout victory of "Jacare's" career and likely earned him a middleweight title shot.
In other action, Tarec Saffiedine scored a smooth decision win over Roger Bowling, Anthony Smith choked out Lumumba Sayers, and Ovince St. Preux knocked out T.J. Cook with one punch.
