It’s been a longtime coming and Sarah Kaufman will make the most of her UFC debut. At UFC 166, she will meet Jessica Eye inside the Octagon.
“I am going to push for Fight of the Night,” said Kaufman to Sci Fighting. “I am feeling great and really anxious to get into the cage and show people what I have.”
Kaufman has been in the sport since 2006 and is a former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion. Earlier in the year she got a split-decision over Leslie Smith for Invicta FC.
Eye is 10-1 and won in her three Bellator appearances. The latest wins came from Zoila Frausto Gurgel and Carina Damm.
UFC 166 is October 19 from the Toyota Center in Houston, TX. The women are part of the prelims, which can be seen on FOX Sports 1.
