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 According to an SI.com report (which cites…nobody), Albu has withdrawn from the matchup due an unspecified injury.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.

Julie Kedzie vs. Rin Nakai, eh? Yeah. I guess I’d watch that.

Alexandra Albu vs. Julie Kedzie Booked for UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane

Bantamweight babe Alexandra Albu just picked up her first assignment in the UFC. The Russian striker — who holds a completely unverifiable record of “5-0″ — will make her Octagon debut against WMMA journeywoman Julie Kedzie (16-12 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 33: Hunt vs. Bigfoot, December 6th in Brisbane, Australia. UFC officials announced the bout yesterday.

Normally, this would be the part where I’d lament the fact that the UFC is throwing a total rookie (and such a pretty girl!) up against a veteran with 28 professional fights, but you know what, I’m not going to do that this time. Kedzie has spent her career tangling with elite fighters like Tara LaRosa, Gina Carano, Shayna Baszler, and Miesha Tate…and she’s been beaten by all of them. The crazy cat lady is currently on a three-fight losing skid, and hasn’t won a fight in over two years. Maybe her “experience edge” just means she knows how to lose. I don’t know. I’m not going to count Alexandra out yet. There’s just something about this woman.

Hot Potato: 15 Photos of Alexandra Albu, The UFC’s Latest Undefeated Bantamweight Goddess

According to multiple reports, the UFC has recently signed undefeated Russian striker Alexandra “Stitch” Albu to their ever-growing bantamweight roster. Who is Alexandra Albu, you ask? That is a very, very good question.

Although we weren’t able to find her actual MMA record anywhere in the world fight indexes, Albu is allegedly a 5-0 bantamweight with 4 first round knockouts and a first round submission to her credit. Additionally, Albu is (allegedly) a black belt in karate, a Moscow Cup-earning power lifter, a judoka and one of Russia’s top Crossfit competitors. We also gave her five out of five Schwings on the Wayne’s World Scale of Hotness, which makes the UFC’s decision to sign her all the more transparent. Not that we’re complaining.

Check out our favorite photos of Albu in the gallery above, as well as a couple videos of her in action after the jump, then fill us in on anything you can find about this woman in the comments section.
