Although Ronda Rousey hasn’t had her title belt very long, she already has her first title defense lined up for later this summer.

According to Strikeforce insiders, Rousey is set to take on number one contender, Sarah Kaufman. The about is assumed to be in August, although no exact date or location has been set.

Rousey is coming off a win this past March against Miesha Tate, that landed her the Strikeforce women’s bantamweight belt.

Kaufman found herself in line for a title shot, after defeating Alexis Davis on the same card earlier this year.
