Due to an undisclosed injury, Holland (21-8 MMA, 8-5 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from his Nov. 13 bout against Daukaus (10-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Two people with knowledge of the withdrawal confirmed the change to MMA Junkie on Wednesday but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
The expectation is that Daukaus will remain on the card against a new opponent.
The two middleweights fought at UFC Fight Night 193 on Oct. 2, but the bout ended in a no contest after an accidental clash of heads reversed the decision on video review.
With the change, the UFC Fight Night 193 lineup includes:
Max Holloway vs. Yair Rodriguez
Jessica Eye vs. Andrea Lee
Marcos Rogerio de Lima vs. Ben Rothwell
Philipe Lins vs. Ovince Saint Preux
Tucker Lutz vs. Lando Vannata
Leah Letson vs. Felicia Spencer
Collin Anglin vs. Sean Woodson
Jailton Almeida vs. Danilo Marques
Julio Arce vs. Song Yadong
Joel Alvarez vs. Thiago Moises
Kyle Daukaus vs. TBA
Miguel Baeza vs. Khaos Williams
Kennedy Nzechukwu vs. Da Un Jung
