"It's insane, and the only thing it comes down to is if she'll fight everyone in the division but me, that makes you a coward. It's as simple as that," Kaufman said. "Why wouldn't you want that fight back?"
If Tate continues to dodge her challenges, Kaufman is willing to move on to a different opponent because ultimately she just wants to fight soon. She wanted to get at least two fights in before the close of 2014, but that didn't happen. Now she's starting out 2015 the same way, and that just doesn't sit well as she hopes to get back into title contention with a few more wins inside the Octagon.
"I just want to get the division moving. We need to have contenders coming up. I'm one of those contenders," Kaufman said. "Let me get in the cage and do what I do and work my way back up. We can't do that with all these girls sitting back and hoping because they have a win over someone else they don't have to fight other good people to get a shot at Ronda."
