Nunes in for Baszler at TUF Nations Finale

 

Amanda Nunes has stepped in for an injured Shayna Baszler.

Nunes was set to face Alexis Dufresne at UFC on FOX 11 but she has agreed to replace Baszler against Sarah Kaufman at The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale card in Quebec, Canada, on April 16.

Sources close to the situation confirmed the news to MMAFighting.com following an initial report from Tatame.

Nunes is 9-3 and signed with the UFC in 2013. She defeated Sheila Gaff in her debut at UFC 163 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A few months later, she scored another first-round TKO with a win over Germaine de Randamie at UFC Fight Night 31.

Kaufman (16-3) is a former Strikeforce bantamweight champion who has yet to taste victory in the UFC. A split decision loss to Jessica Eye at UFC 166 was overturned after Eye has failed a post-fight drug test.

The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale card takes place at the Colisee Pepsi in Quebec and will be headlined by Michael Bisping vs. Tim Kennedy.
