You don't have to uninstall Ubuntu, just tell Fedora to install on the Ubuntu partion and Fedora will reformat the partition and everything Ubuntu will be gone.

yes. when installing Fedora, it will ask you if you want to format that partition (where you are to install it, the same where was Ubuntu), you just say it "yes, format it!" =) (you can install Fedora without formatting that partition but it would cause lots of problems)
