Not even a full day after revealing that Andrea Lee would make her UFC debut against Kalindra Faria at UFC 216, Lee has been removed from the card.
MMAFighting.com first broke the news that Lee has been pulled from next weeks event.
UFC officials and Lee’s camp did not comment on the removal.
The reason behind pulling her— USADA athletes who have failed a drug test in the past have to go through the USADA testing pool for six months.
In March of 2016, Lee was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission when she tested positive for diuretics.
The UFC hopes to keep Faria on the card. They are looking for a replacement.
Stay tuned for updates!
