Injury will keep Aleksandra Albu from fighting Julie Kedzie

New UFC fighter Aleksandra Albu has withdrawn from her Dec. 7 bout against MMA veteran Julie Kedzie due to an unspecified injury.

Albu, a Russian fighter with a Muay Thai background, was scheduled to make her UFC debut on the UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane, Australia. It’s unclear if Kedzie (16-12 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will remain on the card with a replacement opponent.

“I’m disappointed but wish her the best and hope to face her in the future,” Kedzie said on Wednesday.

Kedzie already has a suggested replacement: Rin Nikai, 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.
