Breaking: Curtis Blaydes tests positive for Covid-19 – UFC Main Event Cancelled

Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis were set to go head to head this weekend in a vital heavyweight clash. Unfortunately, Blaydes has reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 and the main event has been scrapped.

This news was broke by Ariel Helwani of ESPN MMA who has confirmed the situation with multiple sources:

The weigh ins are currently going on right now, so it will be too late to find Lewis a replacement. The fight card was heavily reliant on this main event, and losing it will be a big blow to the UFC.

Anthony Smith v Devin Clark will now be a five round Main Event.

We wish Blaydes a speedy recovery.
