The news comes from the UFC's twitter.

Chiesa is coming off a submission victory over Al Inquinta back in June, where he took home "The Ultimate Fighter 15" crown, while LeVesseur is coming off a split decision win over Carlo Prater this past October.
The removal of the lightweight contest comes as another hit to the preliminary card of this weekend's card, which takes place on Saturday in Seattle. Earlier this week Lavar Johnson was forced out of his fight with Brendan Schaub due to a pulled groin.
