UFC President Dana White has detailed Jacare Souza from fighting Uriah Hall as originally planned at UFC 249.
Word broke late Friday night that the middleweight title contender has tested positive for the coronavirus.
White detailed the situation following the event at the press conference.
“This guy was with the people he was with the entire time,” White said (H/T to MMA Junkie). “We kept him away from people and now we know that he has it. He tested positive. We tested him. We know he has it. Now we can help him, too. Whatever this guy is going to need, we know he’s positive and we can help him and is family. I don’t know what he’s going to need medically.
“That’s the other thing. When we’re testing all of our employees and all of our fighters, we’ll find out who has this thing and we can help them.”
