Jennifer Gonzalez will not be participating in the UFC.
MMA Fighting’s Guilherme Cruz confirmed with sources with knowledge of the news that Gonzalez (13-5) has been released from the promotion ahead of what was to be her UFC debut against Josiane Nunes (8-1) at UFC Vegas 49 on Feb. 26.
The reason for Gonzalez’s release is unknown at this time. Also, it is not yet known if a substitute opponent will be sought in order to face Nunes next Saturday at UFC APEX Las Vegas.
Gonzalez was scheduled to join the UFC with a streak of seven wins after Ultimate Warrior Challenge and Combate. Gonzalez, a native Chilean, has won every one of her pro fights via submission (10).
Should Nunes find a new opponent, this will be her second UFC appearance. She made a successful debut this past August with a first-round knockout of Bea Malecki.
