Third opponent’s a charm: Leslie Smith steps in as replacement vs. Sarah Kaufman
Sarah Kaufman was scheduled to face Shayna Baszler at The Ultimate Fighter Nations finale on April 16. An injury forced Baszler out and Amanda Nunes was to replace her on the card. Add another injury. This has to be a promoter’s nightmare with one week away until fight time.
Sarah Kaufman’s (16-2) new opponent is a familiar face as she will be facing Leslie Smith (6-4). The two fought last year at Invicta 5, where Kaufman squeezed out a split decision victory. This event will take place at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
