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.
