The musical chairs of opponents for Sarah Kaufman has landed on Leslie Smith, according to UFC Canadian officials on Twitter.

Kaufman was originally scheduled to meet Shayna Baszler, but The Ultimate Fighter alum was forced out with an injury. Amanda Nunes was tabbed as a replacement, but she also suffered an injury.
