Sarah Kaufman dominated Takayo Hashi for 25 minutes in an uneventful 135-pound championship main event. Kaufman played it safe against a clearly overmatched opponent, which is totally understandable given the high stakes, but resulted in a fight which could only be described as boring. There was not a single moment in the entire fight where it didn't look like Hashi had anything more than a snowball's chance in hell of winning. Kaufman was the better fighter of the two ladies and walked away the first-ever Strikeforce Women's Welterweight Champion. Unfortunately, due to the plodding nature of the fight, a good portion of the crowd walked away before the belt was able to be placed around Kaufman's waist.
