Ronda Rousey makes her first title defense against Sarah Kaufman on August 18th, live on Showtime.

While Rousey has been dominant to date in her pro career, this matchup should be different in that Kaufman is one of the best strikers in women’s MMA. She’s also a former champion with a lot of experience.

Of course, that’s on paper. No one will be shocked if Rousey gets Kaufman to the ground and submits her in the very first round.

Miesha Tate promised to take Rousey into ‘deep waters’. That didn’t happen. Can Kaufman? There’s no doubt any fighter can be knocked out. But Rousey has showed that she can take a punch, work inside for the clinch and let her judo do the rest. That’s the problem that Kaufman faces with Rousey.

While Kaufman was a KO specialist early in her career, she has become more of a point fighter against the upper level of competition. So if Rousey can weather the storm, it looks to be her fight to lose.

Which is probably why Rousey is as high as a 6 to 1 favorite right now at the sportsbooks. Rousey would definitely be my pick, but I’d add her into a parlay to try and maximize the value.

Here’s the promo for the Rousey vs. Kaufman fight.
