Multiple people with knowledge of the shift confirmed the news to MMA Fighting. A knee injury forced Agapova off the July 30 pay-per-view at American Airlines Arena in Dallas.
Agapova hoped to bounce back from a submission loss to rival Maryna Moroz that left her octagon record at 2-2. In her place goes Edwards, who most recently outpointed Ramona Pasqual at UFC 275 to snap a two-fight skid. Edwards now stands at 2-2 in the UFC.
Kim, meanwhile, is in dire need of a reset with three straight losses marking her most recent UFC appearances. Overall, she is 3-4 in the octagon with all of her losses coming by way of decision.
