Kunitskaya (10-3, 1 NC) signed with the UFC earlier this month and was slated to fight Sara McMann at the UFC on FOX 28 even on February 24. However, last week the 28-year-old was pulled from the fight and replaced by Marion Reneau. It now seems “Foxy” will be moving up full time to the 145-pound division in a bid to take the UFC title from Cris Cyborg.
