UFC officials announced the injury news on Thursday.
Lamas was stepping into the bout on short notice to replace fellow featherweight contender Erik Koch, who himself was forced off the card with injury.
There was no word on the nature of the injury that Lamas suffered or how long he’ll be sidelined.
