Headlined by a women's bantamweight title tilt pitting reigning champion Ronda Rousey against former belt holder Sarah Kaufman, the event takes place at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. The main draw airs on premium cable network Showtime, immediately preceded by the preliminary card broadcast on sister network Showtime Extreme.
A former linebacker at the University of Tennessee, St. Preux recently saw an eight-fight winning streak snapped by Gegard Mousasi on Dec. 17. Prior to his decision loss to the Dream light heavyweight champion, “OSP” notched four wins in the Strikeforce cage, outpointing Antwain Britt, Benji Radach and Ron Humphrey before finishing Joe Cason at Challengers 17 last summer.
Like his opponent, Cook also had a solid winning streak halted when he was submitted by Trevor Smith at Challengers 20 this past November. Five consecutive victories preceded that defeat, including a first-round knockout in his Strikeforce debut over Lionel Lanham last July. The Floridian owns nine of his 12 career victories by form of knockout, and all four of his pro defeats have come via submission.view original article >>
