The UFC Fight Night event scheduled for Sept. 5 has been shaken up.

Maryna Moroz will no longer fight that night in Las Vegas. In her place, Viviane Araujo will step in to face Montana De La Rosa. Two people with knowledge of the situation confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie after Combate reported that Moroz was unable to secure a visa because of the coronavirus pandemic and therefore can’t travel to the U.S. from Ukraine.

For Araujo (8-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC), the opportunity to fight is a change in recent misfortune. She had been scheduled to fight Jennifer Maia on June 27, but travel restrictions pushed the bout back to Aug. 1. However, Araujo was forced to withdraw from the re-booking after she tested positive for COVID-19.

Araujo will fight De La Rosa coming off a loss. In her most recent fight last December at UFC 245, Araujo dropped a unanimous decision to Jessica Eye.

De La Rosa (11-5 MMA, 4-1 UFC), meanwhile, has won four of her past five fights. After defeating Christina Marks, Rachael Ostovich and Nadia Kassem in succession to kick off her promotional tenure, De La Rosa suffered her fist UFC loss to Andrea Lee in June 2019. In her most recent fight at UFC on ESPN+ 25 in February, De La Rosa got back in the win column by defeating Mara Romero Borella.

With the change, the Sept. 5 UFC Fight Night lineup includes:

  • Alistair Overeem vs. Augusto Sakai
  • Macy Chiasson vs. Sijara Eubanks
  • Julia Avila vs. Nicco Montano
  • Viviane Araujo vs. Montana De La Rosa
  • Zelim Imadaev vs. Michel Pereira
  • Bartosz Fabinski vs. Andre Muniz
  • Brian Kelleher vs. Ricky Simon
