UFC Fight Night 186 has lost a women’s strawweight bout.

A matchup between Sam Hughes and Emily Whitmire has been removed from the Feb. 27 card in Las Vegas after Whitmire was forced out of the bout due to undisclosed reasons. It has yet to be announced if the bout will be rescheduled for a later date or if the fight will be scrapped all together.

Hughes confirmed the news Sunday on her social media, following a report from Cage Side Press.
