Canada’s Sarah Kaufman Signed to UFC on Fox Sports 1 2 Fight
Sarah Kaufman will make her UFC debut on August 28 on the UFC on Fox Sports 1 2 card at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The former Strikeforce champion will face Sara McMann.
After going 6-2 in Strikeforce, Victoria, British Columbia’s Kaufman (16-2) signed with the UFC. However, she had to get past Leslie Smith at Invicta FC 5 prior to making her debut with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Kaufman managed to squeak by a very tough Smith via a split decision and she will now face Sara McMann in August.
McMann (7-0) is unbeaten in her MMA career which followed a successful wrestling career that saw her win an Olympic silver medal for the USA. McMann made her UFC debut at UFC 159 where she pounded out Sheila Gaff by TKO at UFC 159.
Kaufman and McMann join a card that will be headlined by a Welterweight rematch between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampman.
