The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s July 15 card has been thoroughly ravaged by the coronavirus.

MMA Fighting first reported on Friday that one of Marina Rodriguez’ corners tested positive for COVID-19. This positive test, despite Rodriguez’ own coming back negative, has made the UFC pull her from her fight with Carla Esparza. The two were set to come to blows on the UFC Fight Night card on July 15, with the bout taking place on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
