Another injury has forced a changed at The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 Finale, and the card will go on with eleven bouts.

Diego Brandao has suffered an undisclosed injury and is out of a featherweight clash with UFC newcomer Brian Ortega in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 31.

The UFC announced that Ortega was removed from the card with Brandao’s injury Monday. This is the second time in a row that Brandao is forced out of a UFC bout. In March, Brandao was expected to face Will Chope in Natal, Brazil, but Chope was released by the promotion hours before the bout.

TUF: Brazil 3 Finale takes place at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo and is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Stipe Miocic and Fabio Maldonado.
