Volkan Oezdemir has been forced out of an announced bout for the third time in two months.

After visa issues prevented him from fighting at a May event in Chile and this weekend’s event in Germany, Oezdemir (15-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) has now withdrawn from his scheduled UFC 227 fight against Alexander Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) due to injury.

MMAjunkie verified the change with a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity since UFC officials haven’t made a formal announcement. ESPN.com first reported the change.

The latest UFC 227 card now includes:

Champ T.J. Dillashaw vs. Cody Garbrandt – for bantamweight title
Champ Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo – for flyweight title
Alexander Gustafsson vs. TBA
J.J. Aldrich vs. Polyana Viana
Renato Moicano vs. Cub Swanson
Benito Lopez vs. Ricky Simon
Brett Johns vs. Pedro Munhoz
Irene Aldana vs. Bethe Correia
Kyung Ho Kang vs. Ricardo Ramos
Danielle Taylor vs. Weili Zhang
Sheymon Moraes vs. Matt Sayles
Alex Perez vs. Jose Torres
Wuliji Buren vs. Marlon Vera
