Baszler Out, Kaufman Gets Nunes in Quebec

Top ten bantamweights collide in Quebec City...
With WMMA veteran Shayna Baszler forced out of her UFC debut against Sarah Kaufman on April 16 due to injury, Amanda Nunes will move from her April 19 date against Alexis Dufresne in Orlando to meet the former Strikeforce champion in Quebec City on the TUF Nations Finale card.

The new matchup pits two of the best bantamweights in the world against each other, with Canada's Kaufman currently ranked fifth and Brazil's Nunes ranked eighth.

Dufresne will be rescheduled to fight on a later date.
