Julie Kedzie Welcomes Aleksandra Albu at UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane

The UFC Fight Night 33 roster has been growing by the day. The latest addition to the fight card is a women’s bout between Julie Kedzie and Aleksandra Albu.

UFC officials announced the bout on Tuesday.

Kedzie (16-12) has been fighting for nearly a decade, but has gone through a rough patch recently. She lost her last two Strikeforce fights and her Octagon debut. Germaine de Randamie defeated her by split decision at UFC on Fox 8 in July.

Kedzie needs to get back on the winning track in a bad way, but will face no easy task in Australia, despite her opponent being a UFC newcomer.

Albu (5-0) has much less experience than Kedzie, but the undefeated Russian is a former competitive bodybuilder and powerlifter known for her strength, as well as her stand-up and Judo skills.

A five-round, heavyweight non-title fight between Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva headlines the UFC Fight Night 33 fight card on Dec. 7 in Brisbane, Australia. The fight airs on Dec. 6 in the United States due to the time difference.
