A failed drug test was the reason why Melissa Gatto was pulled from UFC 239 earlier this month, sources confirmed to MMA Fighting following a report by ESPN.

Gatto (6-0-2) was scheduled to face Julia Avila at 239 in Las Vegas on July 6. Less than 20 days before the card, though, the ian withdrew from the bout due to undisclosed reasons. It’s now known that she failed an out-of-competition drug test done by USADA.

NSAC executive director told that Gatto is expected to have her commission hearing in August.

Gatto and her team did not respond a request for comment.

The undefeated ian bantamweight signed with the earlier this year and was booked to face Talita Bernardo at UFC 237 in May. However, she was pulled from the card by the ian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) due to an infection.
