TUF Nations Finale: Leslie Smith Replacing Amanda Nunes, Will Rematch Sarah Kaufman
By FCF Staff
Sarah Kaufman has yet another new opponent for April 16th, as the UFC has announced that Leslie Smith is replacing the injured Amanda Nunes at the TUF Nations Finale.
Kaufman was initially booked to fight Shayna Baszler at the Quebec City bound event, however, the bantamweight withdrew due to injury.
Smith (6-4-1), who will be making her UFC debut, is coming off a decision loss to Barb Honchak at Invicta FC 7 in December. The fighter faced Kaufman under the Invicta FC banner last April, and lost via split decision.
The TUF Nations Finale will be hosted by the Colisee Pepsi, and will feature Michael Bisping taking on middleweight Tim Kennedy in the main event.
The card will also include the welterweight and middleweight finals from the TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia series.
