The two Canadian bantamweights will square off at UFC 186 at the Bell Centre in Montreal April 25. The promotion announced the fight Tuesday.
Kaufman (17-2; 1 NC) had beaten Davis in their previous matches, with their last match being a razor close majority decision in Strikeforce in 2012. Kaufman’s only loss in her past six fights is to champion Ronda Rousey. Kaufman also has a win over Miesha Tate.
Davis is coming off a loss to Rousey, after five fight win streak since her majority loss to Kaufman.
The fight will most likely be on the preliminary card on Fox Sports 1 April 25.
