Kaufman previously defeated Tate by decision at a 2009 Strikeforce event. Kaufman previously said she wanted a spot on UFC 174 (just before she beat Leslie Smith at the TUF Nations Finale). UFC 174 happens in British Columbia on June 14. She previously said she would like to fight either Tate, Liz Carmouche (9-5 MMA, 1-3 UFC) and Cat Zingano (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC). Zigano, however, is currently out with a knee injury but expects to be back in the summer.
