This must be karma for Julia Budd playing it so safe against Germaine de Randamie:
Just two weeks after notching a win in her Strikeforce debut, exciting newcomer Ronda Rousey has already committed to her follow-up bout.
The former U.S. judo Olympian has agreed to face striker Julia Budd in a November event. Strikeforce confirmed that both featherweight fighters have agreed to the bout, but did not disclose a date or location for the show, which has yet to be officially announced.
Budd has already lost one Strikeforce fight in under 15 seconds, and now she’s paired up against an opponent who has never taken more than 30 to defeat anyone. I’d feel bad for her … but that de Randamie fight was goddamn awful. Time to sink or swim, miss softball abs.
