Pedro Munhoz vs. Jimmie Rivera pulled from UFC 258

UFC 258 is down a fight, and COVID-19 is the reported reason.

A bantamweight bout between Pedro Munhoz (18-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC) and Jimmie Rivera (23-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) has been pulled from the card due to a positive coronavirus test result by one of the competitors, who was not identified.

MMA Fighting initially reported the news Tuesday. Both and UFC promotional partner ESPN have since yanked the bout from their UFC 258 lineup pages.

The fight is expected to be rescheduled.

A 140-pound catchweight fight between Andre Ewell and Chris Gutierrez, which had been moved from UFC Fight Night 184 to the UFC 258 prelims, now has been bumped up to the main card.

UFC 258 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and will be headlined by welterweight champion Kamaru Usman’s title defense against Gilbert Burns.
