New HCF World Bantamweight Title Holder; Sarah Kaufman
Sunday, October 28, 2007
Article By Craig Heide

Sarah Kaufman, cornered by her coach Adam Zugec of Zugec Ultimate Martial Arts in Victoria, Canada, captured the women's bantamweight title at Hardcore Championship Fighting's "Title Wave" in Calgary Alberta on Friday October the 19th. In one of the two title fights on the evening's card and touted later by many as the "fight of the night", Kaufman defeated Josh Barnett's Ginele Marquez in dominating style at the 2:33 mark of the second round with referee stoppage due to strikes (TKO). Kaufman brought an impressive and superior game to the ring with relentless standup ability and equally impressive ground skills. Marques fought with heart but couldn't stand against the unyielding strikes Kaufman dealt out. Attempting to bring the game to the mat, likely hoping for some relief from strikes and to test her opponent's ground game, Marquez found Kaufman to be well prepared for that aspect as well.

When asked her thoughts on the level of difficulty, Kaufman said it was a tough fight and Marquez brought a lot of skill, experience, and heart into the match, nothing to be taken lightly. Kaufman stated that it was a match where a lot of things just worked right and played to my favour. Coach Adam Zugec said going into the fight he was by far the more nervous and stressed of the two, post fight photos attest to his pride in his fighter's accomplishment. Sarah Kaufman has trained under Adam Zugec for about four years now and works as office manager at ZUMA, www.zuma.tv, Zugec's mma training facility in Victoria, British Columbia.
