“I wouldn’t say that I wasn’t worried when [I found] out he had COVID,” White told reporters on Tuesday night (H/T to MMAFighting). “I was worried, but the doctors said he’s 100 percent healthy, he’s fine. He’ll get through this, and he’ll be able to continue to train.”

“He had already seen the doctors, and the doctors said he’s going to be fine,” the UFC exec said. “Cruised right through it, not a problem at all.”
