Hard-punching prospect Amanda Nunes has reportedly suffered a foot fracture that has forced her to withdraw from a planned June 18 match-up with fellow 135-pound competitor Julie Kedzie.

MMADiehards.com first reported the news early Wednesday morning, and Kedzie tweeted her disappointment with the report hours later. It is currently unknown if Strikeforce is searching for a replacement opponent for Kedzie.

The women’s bout was to appear on the undercard of Strikeforce “Overeem vs. Werdum,” which will emanate from American Airlines Center in Dallas. Headlining the card will be the titular heavyweight grand prix quarterfinal between Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem and jiu-jitsu ace Fabricio Werdum.

Nunes, 23, has knocked out all six of her fallen foes since she turned pro in 2008. The once-beaten Brazilian was last seen annihilating Canadian striker Julia Budd at Challengers 13 in February, knocking Budd cold in just 14 seconds.

Kedzie has won four-straight bouts. The 30-year-old is a veteran of EliteXC and Bodog Fight competition and most recently outpointed Kaitlin Young to win the Jackson's MMA Series Women’s Bantamweight championship in April.
