April 3rd Weekend Results
Sunday, April 03, 2011

Two top contenders solidify their rankings, while several new amateur champs were crowned over the weekend.

Former Strikeforce champ Sarah Kaufman (13-1) comes back after a tough loss with a dominate win over Megumi Yabushita (19-18) Saturday night at AFC 5 in her hometown of Victoria, BC.

Kaufman used striking and kicks to wear down Yabushita until finally in the third round, Yabushita slipped and Kaufman hit a barrage of strikes to end it at 3:34. It is suspected that Kaufman will be facing former Strikeforce title contender Liz Carmouche sometime in the near future.

Also in action, Pancrase MMA in Japan makes history as it held its first female main event as Mei Yamaguchi (7-2-1) defeated "Windy" Tomomi Sunaba (16-13) via Majority Decision. Yamaguchi had a dominate first round striking from standing to ground, but was unable to finish off Sunaba. The second was a closer for the two, with two judges scoring the round a draw. In the end, it was Yamaguchi getting the majority decision (20-20, 20-18, 20-19) after two rounds. The fight received a fight of the Night bonus.

Pancrase is expected to start crowning its first ever female champs in May.

In amateur action from this past weekend:

Absolute Action MMA had a trio of female matches in Florence, KY.

Jessamyn "The Gun" Duke (pictured decked out in our Purple Athletic top & Violet and Camo Vale Tudo Short) defeated Sarah Cook via submission (rear naked choke) at :52 of round 1 to become the AAMMA Female Champion.

Jindriska Skees defeated Alisa Houschild via submission (armbar) at 1:48 of round 3 in a very competitive contest.
