Former Strikeforce bantamweight champion and UFC bantamweight contender, Sarah Kaufman, has caught wind of Andrea Lee’s UFC 216 removal— and she’s more than willing to step in on short notice.Lee was set to face Faria at 125 pounds before she was pulled from the card due to USADA testing pool complications.
Kaufman, who holds a professional record of 18-4, 1 NC, told the UFC and fight fans via Twitter that she would be able to fill in for Lee on next weekend’s card against Faria at 135 pounds.
Thought the bout was originally scheduled for 125 pounds, Kaufman reveals that there were talks of her facing Faria at 135 pounds in December of this year already.
I'll step in at 135lb with Kalindra next week! Talk of us fighting at 135 in December, so let's just move it up a few months https://t.co/tzVMeNox2i
