Sarah Kaufman vs. Amanda Nunes didn’t last long.
Five days after Nunes was announced as a replacement for Shayna Baszler against Kaufman at The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale card on April 16, the Brazilian is already out with an injury.
According to a report from Combate, Nunes is out of the bantamweight bout with a hand injury and the UFC expects to find another opponent for Kaufman.
"I was really excited to fight Sarah," Nunes wrote on his Instagram. "This was a great opportunity for me. Unfortunately, I dislocated my finger and it will have to wait."
Kaufman (16-3), a former Strikeforce bantamweight champion, has yet to win inside the Octagon. In her only UFC appearance, Kaufman’s split decision loss to Jessica Eye at UFC 166 was overturned to a no-contest after Eye failed a post-fight drug test.
The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale takes place at the Colisee Pepsi arena in Quebec, Canada, and is headlined by a middleweight clash between Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy.
