As previously reported, Andrea Lee won’t be making her Octagon debut at UFC 216 next Saturday, but she plans on signing with the Las Vegas-based promotion.
The Legacy Fighting Alliance flyweight titlist released a statement on Instagram confirming the cancellation of her recently scheduled bout against Kalindra Faria at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Since she failed a drug test for a diuretic in 2016, Lee must be in the USADA testing pool for six months before she can make her UFC debut.
“I’m still signing a fight contract with UFC, that hasn’t changed. I just have to enroll in this program so my time can start ticking,” she wrote. “Look for me to fight next year the end of March or early April.
“P.S.: I’m not on drugs nor have I taken any steroids. I’ve passed all my random drug tests this year.”
