Breaking: Kevin Holland tests positive for Covid 19 – Hermansson v Vettori in the works

Just hours after Curtis Blaydes tested positive for Covid-19 and his main event with Derrick Lewis was scrapped, we now have another UFC main event in jeopardy.

Kevin Holland was stepping in on late notice for his first chance at a top contender. Darren Till recently pulled out of the bout with Hermansson due to a knee injury, leaving Holland with the opportunity to face a top 5 opponent.

Unfortunately, Ariel Helwani of ESPN has just broke the news that Kevin Holland has also tested positive for Covid-19, and it has been confirmed by the fighter himself.

Marvin Vettori is scheduled to face Jacare Souza at UFC 256, but it looks like he is being brought forward to save the main event.

We wish Holland a speedy recovery.
