With Germaine De Randamie injured Sarah Kaufman now welcomes the debuting Valentina Shevchenkov to the Octagon at UFC on Fox 17.

It has not been all sunshine and rainbows for Kaufman since joining the UFC. It started off with a loss to Jessica Eye which was overturned when Eye tested positive for Marijuana. That was followed up 6 months later with another decision win over Leslie Smith and one full year after that Kaufman succumbed to Alexis Davis after defeating her twice previously. So Basically she’ in 2 and half years she went 1-1-1 against 2 opponents she had already beaten. Obviously not what Kaufman had hoped for when she signed with the world’s biggest MMA promotion, with that behind her Kaufman will look to get back to her winings ways.

Shevchenkov, a member of Tiger Muay Thai, is currently riding a 4 fight win streak and last competed this past February at Legacy Fighting Championship 39 where she defeated Jan Finney by decision. Known as “Bullet” her only professional lose came at the hands of Liz Carmouche almost 5 years ago.

UFC on FOX 17 goes down December 19th from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The card is headlined by a Lightweight title fight between champion Rafael Dos Anjos and Donald Cerrone.
