UFC light heavyweight Ovince Saint Preux was forced to withdraw from Saturday’s Fight Night co-main event, his manager confirmed to ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, because of a positive COVID-19 test.
“He battled Covid previously and presented both + and – tests this week,” Saint Preux’s management company, Knockout Representation, wrote on social media Saturday. “He currently has no symptoms and his cornermen are all clear.”
Saint Preux’s manager, Oren Hodak, said Saturday’s test came back positive.
Saint Preux, who has dropped three of his last four fights, was scheduled to take on up-and-comer Alonzo Menifield before the main event of Frankie Edgar vs. Pedro Munhoz. UFC said Saturday that the bout would be rescheduled.
