Rafael Fiziev out of UFC 272 because of COVID-19


Rising UFC lightweight contender Rafael Fiziev won’t be competing this weekend at UFC 272.

Fiziev has been forced to withdraw from his bout against former champion Rafael dos Anjos, which was scheduled as the co-main event Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Fiziev tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing symptoms.

Fiziev (11-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) confirmed he was out on Twitter after Ariel Helwani broke the news Monday.
