Sarah Kaufmann off next week's UFN 27

 

Sarah Kaufman vs. Sara McMann had been scheduled for the main card of Wednesday's UFC Fight Night 27. However, earlier this month, Olympic silver medalist in wrestling McMann withdrew from the fight for undisclosed reasons.

Now MMAJunkie reports that Kaufman too has withdrawn, presumably because a suitable opponent could not be secured with so little time til the fight.

Kaufman will be rescheduled to a later event, and explained what happened on the UG.

I was supposed to be fighting on UFN Aug 28, however after McMann pulled out of the fight no other female stepped up to take it = no fight for me :(

I'm super disappointed as I was already peaking for the fight, but nothing can be done. I haven't heard when/who I will be fighting for the UFC but I hope that it's ASAP as I'm going crazy waiting!

Who do you want to see Kaufman fight next?

I stopped caring about their mistakes. On Their Shogun vs Sonnen post, they said it was a title bout, which means Chael P Sonnen is champ (at least on these forums) and thats all I care about

Sorry it took me so long to fix Chris's error. I think he is at the beach.

Good. More room for the guys. Will never be a fan of WMMA as long as they compete in separate divisions from the men.Also, Mizugaki vs. Perez on the main card instead of one of the TUFers fights, please.

this card should have been bigger.  you need momentum going into ufc 164 prelims a few days later and then fight night 28 and tuf a week later. Zuffa wanted Nick Diaz vs Condit which would have been a more marketable main event.

Someone already knows what fight is happening. I think she will be fighting in Houston at 166
