Kaufman-Smith Rematch Set for Quebec

Female bantamweight standouts Kaufman and Smith meet on April 16 in Quebec City
It may have taken a long road to get to this point, but after a little over a year and injuries to two other fighters, Leslie Smith will get her rematch with Sarah Kaufman at the TUF Nations Finale on April 16 in Quebec City.

Smith and Kaufman engaged in a memorable battle in the Invicta promotion last April, with Kaufman taking a close split decision victory. Since then, former Strikeforce champion Kaufman moved to the UFC, but after Shayna Baszler and Amanda Nunes were both forced out of next week's bout with the British Columbia native due to injury, Smith agreed to step up on short notice to make her UFC debut.
