Carlos Felipe was set to make his UFC debut next month, but that’s not happening anymore.

The UFC today announced that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has informed Felipe of a possible doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected July 29.

As a result, Felipe’s scheduled Oct. 28 bout with fellow heavyweight Christian Colombo (8-2-1 MMA, 0-1-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 119 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has been scrapped. The UFC is currently seeking a replacement for Colombo.

The 22-year-old Felipe (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is undefeated with six of his eight victories coming by way of TKO.

Below is the UFC’s full statement:

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Carlos Felipe of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on July 29, 2017. Because of the proximity to Felipe’s upcoming scheduled bout in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on October 28, 2017, against Christian Columbo, Felipe has been removed from the card and UFC is currently seeking a replacement.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Felipe. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
