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.

The two will meet next Wednesday at UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Kennedy from Quebec City in Canada.

Smith (6-4-1) will be making her Octagon debut. She has competed for Invicta FC since 2012, going 3-2-1. Her last fight was a loss to Barb Honchak in December.

Kaufman (16-2) and Smith previously met in 2013 while both were signed to Invicta FC. Kaufman won via split decision before signing with the UFC.

    This is a great signing, this should be a hell of a rematch. Smith is a complete badass, but so is Sarah so I am 50/50 but leaning Smith.
