Blaydes vs. Lewis main event scrapped

The heavyweight fight between Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis has been pulled from Saturday night’s card in Las Vegas.

According to multiple sources speaking to MMA Fighting on Friday, Blaydes tested positive for COVID-19, which obviously forced the UFC to cancel the main event. There’s early talks about rescheduling the heavyweight fight for a later date in December but nothing has been determined yet.
