UFC Fight Night loses co-main event to COVID


The UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas has lost two more bouts at the last minute, according to promotional officials.

The UFC announced on Saturday that a bantamweight matchup between Rani Yahya and Kyung Ho Kang and a welterweight clash between Niklas Stolze and Jared Gooden have both been removed from the card. Yahya (27-10-1), who was supposed to appear in the co-main event, announced on social media he tested positive for Covid-19 but felt fine.

The event, which takes place at the Apex facility and airs on ESPN and ESPN+, will now proceed with nine total bouts. It originally consisted of 15 matchups. The UFC was forced to cancel two fights on Friday, after former flyweight champion Nicco Montaño missed weight and bantamweight Ronnie Lawrence stopped his weight cut entirely.

A middleweight bout between Uriah Hall and Sean Strickland will still headline the card.
