BTC Fight Promotions announces Sarah Kaufman vs Jessy Miele for next month. BTC 13: Power takes place on November 20th at the Meridian Centre in St.Catherines.
Women’s MMA pioneer Sarah Kaufman, former UFC and PFL competitor, has inked a deal with BTC Fight Promotions. She will debut under the BTC banner against former Bellator fighter, Jessy Miele. This is a compelling contest that is set for 145 pounds and one that tops the marquee.
The pride of Victoria, BC, Sarah Kaufman fights in Canada for the first time since 2011. The former Invicta FC champion has secured victories over Jessica-Rose Clarke, Leslie Smith, and Alexis Davis to name a few.
Kaufman stated, “There are so many incredible factors that made my decision to fight for BTC an easy one: 1) I get to fight on home soil (Canada) 2) BTC is a female-owned promotion, which gives extra emphasis and understanding to the value of female fighters, and 3) Jessy Miele is a game opponent who is going to push me to compete at my best. I can’t wait to share my BTC fight on Nov 20 with fans watching the live stream around the world.”

Jessy Miele has shared the cage with names like Julia Budd and Janay Harding. The 14 fight warrior is preparing for her toughest test as of yet.
Miele stated, “This fight with Sarah Kaufman has been a long time coming. I’ve wanted to scrap with her for years now and it just never worked out for one reason or another. I’m also genuinely excited to be able to compete in Canada once again and in a female owned organization at that! This is gonna be a fight you don’t want to miss! As far as the fight itself goes – something inside me just clicked recently. Completely dialed in. I’m hungry. Very, very hungry.”
