Ronda Rousey vs. Sarah Kaufman fight video preview for Strikeforce event on Aug. 18

Latex catsuits FTW.

Newly-crowned Strikeforce Women's Champion Ronda Rousey has her first 135-pound title defense lined up for August 18, 2012 from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California, where she's scheduled to face off against former division queenpin Sarah Kaufman on Showtime.

Unfortunately, they won't be dressed like this.

It's amazing that Rousey will be dressed at all, considering how quick she was to shed a few layers for the gawkers at ESPN the Magazine. Maybe that was enough incentive for Carmen Electra to seek out her services?

Kaufman, as expected, is hovering around the +425 mark, and not many people are giving her a chance against the former Olympic Judo medalist. But, this is mixed martial arts (MMA), and we all know anything can happen.

Stay tuned.
