The co-main event at UFC 249 has taken a major hit as former strawweight champion Rose Namajunas has been forced out of her upcoming rematch against Jessica Andrade.

Multiple sources close to the contest confirmed the information to MMA Fighting on Wednesday following an initial report from Combate.

At this time there’s been no reason revealed for Namajunas’ withdrawal but she will not be competing on April 18 as scheduled.

With Namajunas out, Andrade will now wait to find out if the UFC can secure her a last minute opponent for the card. Andrade and her team had already traveled from Brazil to the United States to avoid any possible restrictions that could come as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
