Antonina Shevchenko, who is the sister of UFC fighter Valentina Shevchenko, is set to headline Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series Episode 11 against Silvana Juarez.

That main event is now in jeopardy as a report from MMA Junkie is stating that Juarez has suffered an injury and is off the card, although the extent of the injury is unknown. Shevchenko is expected to remain on the card at this time, as DWTNCS officials are seeking a replacement opponent for her to fight.
