Though Nick Diaz was a no-show for the 2012 World Jiu-Jitsu Expo headliner, his family member, Nate Diaz and head coach Cesar Gracie were on-site in support. Also present in support was Diaz’ latest training partner; women’s bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey. The champ clarified that her reported bout against Sarah Kaufman had not in fact been made official as of yet, but is likely next in line for her. When asked how she saw the Kaufman bout going, it was a simple ‘off the top of her head’ victory prediction.
‘I’m going to win. Of course. I never really have an exact plan. I usually plan our first exchange and then after that I improvise the rest of it. Will be sharp and will be ready for certain things she has the tendency to do, other than that, I’ll make it up off the top of my head.”
With a thinned talent pool in the women’s divisions, a deserving challenger to face the winner of Rousey – Kaufman may prove to be difficult. According to Rousey, she could see the return of former dominating featherweight champ, Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino being her next adversary.
I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, let alone a year from now, but I thinks somebodies suspension might be running out around that time
