The Ultimate Fighter season 18 alum and women’s mixed martial arts veteran Shayna Baszler has yet to fight since her time on the show, and it looks like her UFC debut will have to wait a little longer.
Baszler was set to make her debut at the TUF Nations Finale against No. 5-ranked Sarah Kaufman, which would have given her the opportunity to shake up the rankings with a victory. Unfortunately, Baszler was injured in training and forced to withdraw just two weeks before the fight on Wednesday night.
The UFC announced the news on their official Twitter account.

It is unfortunate for Baszler and Kaufman, and now the UFC will be faced with the tough task of finding someone to step up against a top five opponent on just fourteen days notice.
