It looks like the UFC’s November 7th card has lost a compelling, lightweight fight, as it’s being reported Diego Ferreira will no longer battle Drew Dober.

The lightweights were scheduled to fight at the event, which is set to take place at the Apex Facility in Las Vegas.

Recently My MMA News reported, however, that Ferreira has withdrawn from the bout. Sources have also confirmed to MMA Junkie that Ferreira will no longer fight Dober.

The My MMA News reports cites illness as the reason, but no reason was disclosed to MMA Junkie.

Ferreira (17-2) is riding a six-fight winning streak and is coming off a submission win over Anthony Pettis in January.

Dober (23-9) has won three in a row and most recently stopped Alexander Hernandez in May.
