Kaufman wobbled Eye with a flurry of strikes in the third frame of her UFC 166 bout, but ultimately lost a close judges' decision. The Canadian says she would be happy to fight Eye again sometime down the road, in order to settle the score for good.
"You know, I feel like something needs to be done. I feel like I won the second and the third, for sure," Kaufman said. "For the judge to give me the second round and not the third...something is wrong with the judging in that sense. It mars the fight for both Jessica and myself. Honestly, Jessica came out and fought hard. It was a great fight. To have it marred by something like that...you want to win knowing the decision was just. I feel bad for her in that sense, in that she has the win, yet the majority of people don't think she won. It's kind of a misrepresentation for myself and for her.
"If there was a way to turn it into a no contest and then have us fight again, just to be clear, I would be okay with that, even though I think that I won the fight. The thing is, you can't be too sour grapes about it. It's a fight, and you don't want to be pouting and stamping your feet, but you do want what's right and what's just."
While Kaufman fell short against Eye, she says its her loss to Ronda Rousey that bothers her most.
"The Ronda fight irks me to this day," Kaufman said. "It's the first time that I went in and didn't perform whatsoever. That's honestly the loss that I want to erase the most. It's not at all a good representation of who I am as a fighter. Ronda fought exactly how she wanted to, and you can't take that away from her, but I didn't fight at all, and that's what bothers me the most. I didn't use any of my potential.
"Then my first loss, to Marloes, was a great fight. We both did some really good things. I had the momentum going my way and I made a stupid error, a bad judgment call, and she capitalized on it and did really well. That one I'm more okay with than the others. I fought well, but made stupid errors that hopefully I won't make again."
No word yet from the UFC on who Kaufman fights next.
