Al Iaquinta won’t be fighting Justin Gaethje in August’s UFC Fight Night 135 headliner, after all.

Although Iaquinta never definitively said he was in the fight, the UFC formally announced the matchup with Gaethje on Tuesday, with tickets set to go on sale Friday. It’s not going to happen, though.

Iaquinta was vague when he responded to MMAjunkie via text message tonight and didn’t say without question that he’s out of the fight, news that was first reported by ESPN.com’s Ariel Helwani.

The latest UFC Fight Night 135 lineup includes:

Justin Gaethje vs. TBA
Deiveson Figueiredo vs. John Moraga
Angela Hill vs. Alexa Grasso
Antonio Braga Neto vs. Andrew Sanchez
Eryk Anders vs. Tim Williams
Drew Dober vs. Jon Tuck
Luke Sanders vs. Rani Yahya
