This is a very2 old news.
That specific MiG-29UB has been for sale since like 5-6 years already…
That MiG-29UB would be very difficult to be sold outside of USA due to ITAR restrictions.
But someone in Malaysia has bought an ex military jet trainer, based in subang but keeping it registered in USA (would DCA take ex military jets on malaysian reg?)

Owned by AFjets Amrul Nizar Anuar.
As for others, as i am an avid tracker of anything 2ndhand military stuffs, there are those officially announced, also those that are not. Some like jordanian aircrafts are well known. Others like begiums alphajets are not so.
More updates on the canadian used hornets buy.
From the canadian side the sale is said to cost $90 million canadian dollars. New updates from australia puts it at $95 million aussie dollars. In any case, it is a very2 good buy for the Canadians, which puts each used hornet at USD2.8 million each at most.
From the 25 airframes, there is no news yet of the breakdown of A and B models, and which airframe number that would be transferred to Canada.
Right now Australia has 16 remaining B model Hornets (the twin seaters) and we don’t know how many of those to be transferred to Canada.
Still, if TUDM makes a quick move, those twin seaters will be a great addition to beef up the numbers at our 18 Skuadron.
RAAF 2OCU, which houses most of the F/A-18B Hornets, will be retiring all its hornets by december 2019 and change to F-35s next year.
