She wants to get in as many fights in this year as possible…
- Sarah Kaufman recently spoke about wanting to fight Amanda Nunes and more. Here are the highlights…
On Wanting to Fight: "The more you wait, the longer the next fight is. I want to get in as many fights in this year as possible."
On Jessica Eye's Situation: "I read something that said Jessica has been dealing with this for the last few months, and to me, I was considered as having a loss. So to have it a no-contest, potentially I could have had a fight much sooner than this. "It's a big what-if game, but I would have liked to have known when she found out, because she's had all this time to deal with it and still get a fight going, whereas I've been waiting in limbo here."
On Fighting in Canada: "I would assume they want to use me in Canada, so hopefully I can get on [The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale]," she said. "Whatever card I can get onto, I just want to fight. I don't want to be sitting on the sidelines. I don't want to be talking with Internet warriors about if I'm good or not good. I want to say it in the cage and have it be enough said."
On Fighting Amanda Nunes: "At this point, I think Amanda Nunes would be an amazing fight," she said. "We're both pretty aggressive; we both like to throw down. At the end of the day, we're both very hungry to prove ourselves in the division. Amanda has won her first two fights, and this would be her third, so I think she really wants to step up and get up to that top echelon. To me, that's a great fight. The fans would love it, I would love it, I think she would love it, and I think the UFC would be very happy with the result."
