The UFC’s International Fight Week slate is down a fight.

Amanda Ribas, a new strawweight signee, was flagged by USADA for a potential anti-doping violation and removed from her fight with Juliana Lima at the Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale on July 7 in Las Vegas, the UFC announced Thursday.

“Because of her potential anti-doping violation and the proximity to that event, Ribas has been removed from the card and the UFC is currently seeking a replacement,” the UFC’s statement read.

USADA will work with the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC), which also has jurisdiction over the event, on the doping case, per the release.

Ribas (6-1) competed last month, a second-round TKO victory over Jennifer Gonzalez Araneda under the Max Fight banner in her native Brazil.

It’s unclear if the UFC will seek a replacement for Lima.
