Saturday night marks a rare occasion where fight fans get excited for a women's title fight.

Reigning Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate defends her 12 pounds of gold against undefeated Judo expert Ronda Rousey. 

In the co-main event, KJ Noons takes on Josh Thompson in a lightweight bout that could easily be an unofficial title eliminator fight to name the next challenger for Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez. 

In another match that could determine who wears Strikforce gold in the near future, hard-hitting veteran Paul Daley takes on Japanese brawler Kizuo "Hitman" Misaki. 

At 185 pounds, former Strikeforce middleweight title holder Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza looks to get back to his winning ways against the Superior Cage Combat Middleweight Champion, Bristol Marunde. 

Rounding out the main card, another middleweight scrap places veteran power puncher Scott Smith against the largely unknown grappler Lumumba Sayers.

Bleacher Report MMA Featured Columnists Matthew Saccaro, Kyle Symes, Jordy McElroy and myself, John Heinis, are letting you know who gets their hand raised this time around.
