Jun 7, 2012 - The Ronda Rousey (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/131295/ronda-rousey) Express will hit Southern California later this summer.

Rousey will defend her Strikeforce (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/promotion/strikeforce) bantamweight title for the first time against Sarah Kaufman (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122594/sarah-kaufman) on Aug. 18 in San Diego, Calif., MMAFighting.com has confirmed with sources close to the fight. The promotion is expected to officially announce the date in the coming weeks.

Rousey (5-0) defeated Miesha Tate (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/130035/miesha-tate) in March to capture the women's 135-pound belt. The win capped off an impressive year which saw her win her first five fights in a combined time of 7:15.

Kaufman (15-1) secured her spot as the No. 1 contender when she defeated Alexis Davis (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/132840/alexis-davis) on the same card in March. The Canadian has won three in a row since losing the 135-pound belt to Marloes Coenen (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122593/marloes-coenen) in Oct. 2010.

The card, which will mark the third in San Diego since Zuffa purchased Strikeforce, will air on Showtime.
