Marcelo Golm is taking Carlos Felipe’s place against Christian Colombo at UFC Fight Night 119. UFC officials announced the new fight on Thursday (via MMAjunkie).

Felipe was pulled from due to a possible anti-doping violation. He has issued a statement saying, “I was informed of a potential violation in the antidoping test. I’m well aware that I haven’t used any substance prohibited by USADA. Since signing with the UFC, I didn’t even take caffeine capsules anymore. I’ll be waiting for the USADA trial. I apologize to everyone who was anxious for this fight.”

UFC Fight Night 119 takes place on October 28th in Sao Paulo. It airs on FOX Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
