"I thought there were some really good fights. You know, it was pretty funny having four girls that are primarly, you know, grapplers and wrestlers and judoka and capoeira, so there wasn't a lot of striking. So it really was, you know, kind of a battle of attrition...It looks like I'm fighting Marloes Coenen, is what I've been told. You know, look for me before the end of the year, for sure," stated Strikeforce women's welterweight champion Sarah Kaufman as she shared her thoughts on the outcome of the Strikeforce women's welterweight tournament.

"Literally, it's a dream come true, I mean, I came here on a mission and I feel like I made very few mistakes and I accomplished my goal and now, it's on to step two, which is getting that belt and hopefully it's with Sarah Kaufman," stated Strikeforce women's welterweight tournament winner Miesha Tate as she talked about her recent victories and a future clash with reigning Strikeforce women's welterweight champion Sarah Kaufman.
"It was a great show. I think the female tournament proved itself. We have a couple of good up-and-coming girls, like Miesha, who won the tournament, but also, I think Akano rose in stock today. And Joe Riggs definitely increased his stock and he'll probably be back and I'm looking forward to Joe fighting again soon...The King Mo fight, you never know what you're gonna get. This guy is amazing...he's a guy who's developed his hands, his hands feet; he's committed to becoming a well-rounded mixed martial artist and not just a wrestler, so with him, you never know," stated Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker as he shared his thoughts on last Friday's Strikeforce Challengers card and discussed this weekend's upcoming Strikeforce Houston card.
"One thing I wasn't too impressed with tonight, and unfortunately it appears to be a common thread in mixed martial arts these days, refereeing was a little shoddy in some of the stand-ups, and even the way they interfered with some of the action. Unfortunately, it's still a work in progress," stated Strikeforce commentator Mauro Ranallo as he shared his thoughts on last Friday's Strikeforce Challengers card.
