It was not meant to be for Jessica Andrade at UFC 207.

According to her team, Andrade has been officially pulled from next week's card after the UFC couldn't find a suitable replacement to fight her on short notice.

As a result, the Louis Smolka vs. Ray Borg flyweight fight has been bumped up to the Dec. 30 main card, according to

Andrade has been in Las Vegas since Monday, hoping the UFC would find her a last-minute replacement. She was originally scheduled to fight Maryna Moroz and then Angela Hill but those fights fell through for various reasons.

It's unclear at this time when Andrade (15-5) will get re-booked and against who. The Brazilian strawweight is 2-0 since dropping down to 115 pounds earlier this year, with wins over Jessica Penne and Joanne Calderwood.

The card, headlined by Amanda Nunes vs. Ronda Rousey for the women's bantamweight title, will now proceed with 11 fights.
