Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is once again searching for an opponent to fight Sarah Kaufman at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Nations" live finale, which takes place on April 16, 2014, inside Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City, Canada, on FOX Sports 1.
After Shayna Baszler was forced from the card due to injury, fellow bantamweight Amanda Nunes was asked to step in to take her place. Five days later, a dislocated finger has sent "Lioness" to the sidelines until further notice, according to a report from Combate (via MMA Fighting).
Maybe we can get that Jessica Eye rematch?
Kaufman (16-2) has been in the headlines these past few months thanks to her split-decision loss at UFC 166, which was recently overturned and ruled a "no decision" by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (details). Wiping the "Evil" slate clean keeps her in the win column, having last outpointed Leslie Smith at Invicta 5.
So why not run it back?
TUF: "Nations" finale will be headlined by the Michael Bisping vs. Tim Kennedy grudge match, as well as the co-headliner between season coaches Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke. In addition, tournament champions will be crowned in the welterweight and middleweight divisions.
