Sarah Kaufman hopes the third time is the charm.

The former Strikeforce champion will now square off against Leslie Smith at the Colisee Pepsi in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada next Wednesday night, according to UFC officials Tuesday.

Smith will be the third opponent slated to face Kaufman for this event. Shayna Bazler had to pull out of their fight with an injury, as did Amanada Nunes.

It will be a rematch between the two bantamweights. Kaufman defeated Smith via split decision at Invicta FC on April 5, 2013 in a 'Fight of the Night' performance.

Michael Bisping will face Tim Kennedy in the main event.
