Sarah Kaufman To Face Leslie Smith At Invicta FC 5

Former Strikeforce female champion Sarah Kaufman finally has an opponent for her next match, as she will face Leslie Smith at Invicta FC 5 later this year.

The bout, which has yet to secure location, will be part of the April 5 card. It will take place on a Friday between Bellator (Thursday) and UFC on Fuel TV 9 (Saturday).

Kaufman (15-2) last fought in August, falling to Ronda Rousey. She was expected to debut in Bellator last October, but an injury kept her sidelined.

Smith (5-2) is unbeaten in three Invicta FC bouts, going 2-0-1. She has defeated both Kaitlin Young and Raquel Pennington.

Another bout made official by the promotion will see Kaitlin Young battle Amanda Nunes. Young (7-7-1) went 1-2-1 in 2012, while Nunes is 7-3 in her career.
