You may remember Aleksandra Albu as the recent UFC signee with the suspicious record and tight body who was supposed to fight Julie Kedzie at UFC Fight Night 33 in December. Unfortunately, the Russian striker might not be gracing us with her presence quite yet. According to an SI.com report (which cites…nobody), Albu has withdrawn from the matchup due an unspecified injury. Cat scratch fever, perhaps.
“I’m disappointed but wish her the best and hope to face her in the future,” said Kedzie. The SI report adds:
Kedzie already has a suggested replacement: Rin Nikai [sic], of Japan. Nikai beat Kedzie’s Jackson/Winklejohn teammate Tara La Rosa on a controversial decision in September. Nikai, however, is not currently under UFC contract.
