Julie Kedzie, Sarah Kaufman, Two Others Confirmed To UFC’s Women’s Division

The four latest additions to the UFC’s female bantamweight division include Julie Kedzie, Sarah Kaufman, Germaine de Randamie and Amanda Nunes, according to a report by A.J. Perez of FOX Sports.

Kedzie confirmed the signing on her own Twitter page Saturday night.

The first-ever female fight inside the Octagon goes down this evening, as Ronda Rousey meets Liz Carmouche in the main event of UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche. The second female fight will feature Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano.

Sara McMann and Alexis Davis have also been signed to UFC deals, and UFC president Dana White mentioned that they hope to have 15 women in the division in the near future.

Kedzie (16-11) is a veteran of the sport, but has lost her last two fights to Tate and Davis. Davis (13-5) has won two straight and five of her previous six, with the lone loss coming to Kaufman.

Kaufman (15-2) is a former Strikeforce champion and is scheduled to meet Leslie Smith at Invicta FC 5 in April. Nunes (7-3) is also scheduled for that same Invicta card, meeting Kaitlin Young.
