Well, the fight that was supposed to happen between Ronaldo Souza and Uriah Hall isn’t anymore. 

Souza was reportedly pulled out of the match by UFC after testing positive for the Coronavirus. 

The UFC has been facing some backlash because of their decision to move forward with UFC 249 set to take place on Saturday (May 9th) in Jacksonville, Florida at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena. 

Souza had reported to UFC officials that a family member had tested positive during the pandemic. Since being removed from the card, Souza has been isolated. 

However, the event will still take place but there is no word on who Hall will be facing.
