Kaufman vs Smith 2

First, Shayna Baszler was scheduled to fight Sarah Kaufman (16-2-1), but Baszler withdrew due to injury. Leslie Smith quickly requested the fight on twitter, but Smith was passed over and Amanda Nunes got the assignment.  Unfortunately, Nunes injured her thumb and had to withdraw.  So, on April 16th on The Ultimate Fighter Nations finale, Leslie Smith (6-4-1) will face Sarah Kaufman for the second time.

The first time Kaufman and Smith faced each other, it was a barn-burner for Invicta FC with Kaufman winning a split decision.  Although it’s short notice, Smith has received the fight she asked for and a chance to avenge her earlier loss.
