de Randamie out, Shevchenko to debut against Kaufman

Owner of a reported 60-1 kickboxing record and a 9-1 slate in mixed martial arts, Valentina Shevchenko will test herself in the Octagon for the first time on Saturday, Dec. 19, as she faces former Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman in what promises to be a strikers' duel at Amway Center.

Shevchenko, a native of Kyrgyzstan, replaces Germaine de Randamie in the bantamweight bout, which is featured on the FOX-televised card headlined by the UFC lightweight title bout between Rafael dos Anjos and Donald Cerrone.
