Sarah Kaufman is getting a match, but not with a person people were expecting.
The UFC announced Thursday Kaufman would be facing Germaine de Randamie at UFC on Fox 17 December 19th in Orlando, Florida.
Kaufman (17-3; 1NC) is coming off a submission loss to Alexis Davis this past April. Kaufman has been itching for a fight, calling out names including Bethe Corriea, Cat Zingano, and Miesha Tate.
She won’t have an easy test in de Randamie (5-3) who is coming off a TKO over Larissa Pacheco. The kickboxer has notable wins over Julie Kedzie and Hiroko Yamanaka.
The fight will most likely be on the preliminary card, which will air on Fox Sports 1.
