Invicta’s Sarah Kaufman out to remind UFC she’s the fighter they need — VIDEO

Women’s bantamweight fighter Sarah Kaufman thinks she could be on her way back to the UFC soon.

In 2015, Kaufman became a free agent and was not re-signed by UFC following two straight losses with the promotion. After a 15-month layoff, she returned to the cage and notched a unanimous decision over Jessica Rose Clark.

This December it was announced that she would face Pannie Kianzad in the main event of Invicta FC 27. Kaufman believes the UFC could give her a second chance if she puts on an explosive performance at the Jan. 18 event.
