Update: Showtime Confirms Kaufman vs. Hashi for Feb. 26th

It was reported here earlier today that Strikeforce was considering arranging a spring title fight between Victoria, B.C. based Sarah Kaufman (10-0) and Tokyo, Japan's Takaya Hashi for the women's 135lb. title. Now a firm date has been announced on the official site of Strikeforce's longtime broadcast partner, Showtime Sports.

According to Showtime, Kaufman vs. Hashi will serve as the co-main event on Strikeforce Challengers: Prangley vs. Amoussou on February, 26th. The show will air at 11PM ET/PT. See the full announced fight card below:

  • Trevor Prangley (22-5) vs. Karl Amoussou (11-2-1)
  • Sarah Kaufman (10-0) vs. Takayo Hashi (12-1)
  • Luke Rockhold (6-1) vs. Paul Bradley (12-1)
  • Jame Terry (7-1) vs. Tarec Saffiedine (7-2)
  • Raul Castillo (6-0) vs. Yancy Medeiros (4-0)

Unfortunately, almost no Canadians receive the Showtime network. In Canada, the fights will be broadcast on Superchannel, but the majority of Canadians do not get that premium cable station either.

More on this story as it develops.
