Legacy Fighting Alliance flyweight queen Andrea Lee will need wait a little while before she can make her UFC debut.
According to a report from MMAFighting.com, Lee was pulled from a proposed 125-pound clash against Kalindra Faria at UFC 216 on Oct. 7 because she had failed a drug test in the past and needs to be in the USADA drug testing pool for six months. “KGB” tested positive for diuretics in March 2016 and was suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
While the UFC never formally announced the bout, Lee recently confirmed the pairing on her Twitter account. The promotion has also not made a statement regarding Lee’s removal. According to the report, a replacement opponent for Faria is being sought.
UFC 216 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and is headlined by an interim lightweight championship clash pitting Tony Ferguson against Kevin Lee. In the co-main event, Demetrious Johnson defends his flyweight crown against Ray Borg.
