UFC Newcomers Aleksandra Albu, Izabela Badurek to Meet on April 11 in Poland

By C.J. Tuttle Feb 25, 2015

Izabela Badurek has won three straight.
Aleksandra Albu and Izabela Badurek will make their Ultimate Fighting Championship debuts in a strawweight bout at UFC Fight Night “Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop 2.”

UFC officials announced the strawweight pairing on Wednesday. The UFC Fight Pass-streamed card takes place April 11 at Krakow Arena and marks the Las Vegas-based promotion’s first trip to Poland. The event is headlined by a heavyweight rematch between Gabriel Gonzaga and Mirko Filipovic.

Albu owns just one recorded professional bout to her credit. The 24-year-old earned a first-round technical knockout over fellow countrywoman Lyubov Demidova in 2013, stopping her foe in 3:13 under the Russia-based Octagon Fight Club banner. “Stitch” was slated to make her promotional debut against Julie Kedzie at UFC Fight Night “Hunt vs. Bigfoot,” but was forced to withdraw due to injury.

Hailing from Lublin, Poland, Badurek will look to extend her current winning streak to four fights. All seven of the 23-year-old’s bouts have taken place on Polish soil.
