Cuban lightweight Yoislandy Izquierdo may not be making his UFC debut in February, after all.

Despite an announcement from the UFC earlier this month that Izquierdo would meet Bernardo Magalhaes at February's UFC on FUEL TV 1 event, an ongoing contract dispute with the Florida-based Championship Fighting Alliance may prevent "Cuba" from appearing in the octagon.

MMAjunkie.com today confirmed with sources close to the fighter that an existing deal with Championship Fighting Alliance, where Izquierdo currently serves as lightweight champion, may prevent his departure from the organization.
