Rafael Fiziev out of his UFC 272 fight

The highly anticipated lightweight matchup between Rafael Fiziev and Rafael dos Anjos that had to take place at UFC 272 this upcoming weekend won’t be happening.

Fiziev, 28, has tested positive for COVID-19 and won’t be able to compete. He confirmed the news on his Twitter account.

UFC is trying to find a replacement for Fiziev and already there’s a frontrunner. Two days after his dominant performance against Bobby Gree, Islam Makhachev volunteers to step in and fight RDA.

Both Makhachev and dos Anjos have been scheduled to fight three times in the past – twice in 2020 and once in 2021. Unfortunately, the fight never materialized due to COVID-19 and injuries on the Brazilian side.

“170??? Let’s do it,” Makhachev wrote on Twitter. “We have unfinished business RDA.”

Renato Moicano is another fighter that could replace Fiziev.
