New, comments

Sarah Kaufman came in for some criticism after complaining that she shouldn't be relegated to the Strikeforce Challengers series, but it looks like Kaufman had the last laugh.

And her fight was the most-watched fight on the program, despite not being the headliner. Per MMA Junkie:

The peak audience actually came for the night's co-main event, a title fight between women's welterweight champ Sarah Kaufman and challenger Roxanne Modafferi that spiked with 254,000 viewers.

The fight actually topped the Shane Del Rosario vs. Lolohea Mahe headliner, which drew 226,000 viewers.
