UFC 256 loses two fights due to COVID-19

UFC 256 has been ravaged due to COVID-19 and other issues and this Saturday’s pay-per-view has taken two more hits.

Welterweight Dwight Grant will miss out on the action because he tested positive for coronavirus and won’t be able to compete. The 36-year-old had to face Li Jingliang.

At this point, it’s not known if the Chinese fighter will stay on the card or the fight will be rescheduled.

Middleweight Karl Roberson also contracted the virus, but his fight with Dalcha Lungiambula has been moved to UFC Vegas 17 on December 19th.

These two stories follow Angela Hill confirming she’s out of her rematch with Tecia Torres for the same reason.

If no replacements are found to fight Torres and Jingliang respectively, then UFC 256 will only have ten fights.
