Another UFC fight has been called off after a fighter tested positive for COVID-19 shortly before the event was set to begin. 1udLive体育网



The UFC’s Gerald Meerschaert announced Saturday that his matchup with Ed Herman at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night was off after testing positive for the coronavirus. Meerschaert indicated he was not feeling symptoms of the virus and would self-isolate. 1udLive体育网

UFC的Gerald Meerschaert周六宣布,他与Ed Herman在周六UFC格斗之夜的比赛因冠状病毒检测呈阳性而取消。Meerschaert表示,他没有感觉到病毒的症状,并将自我隔离。1udLive体育网


The fight was to be Meerschaert’s debut at light heavyweight. The 32-year-old holds a career record of 31-13, but has lost four of his last six fights. 1udLive体育网



Oddly enough, Meerschaert’s most recent fight had almost been called off after opponent Ian Heinisch’s cornerman tested positive for the virus, but was put back on the schedule after a second test came back negative. Heinisch ended up beating Meerschaert via first-round TKO. 1udLive体育网

奇怪的是,Meerschaert最近的一场比赛在对手Ian Heinisch的基石病毒检测呈阳性后几乎被取消,但在第二次检测呈阴性后又被重新列入日程。海尼施最终通过首轮TKO击败了Meerschaert。1udLive体育网


Withdrawal creates smallest UFC card in years 1udLive体育网



With Meerschaert vs. Herman off the card, the UFC is facing an unusually thin card for Saturday. 1udLive体育网



The Fight Night’s previous main event between Irene Aldana and Holly Holm had already been postponed after Aldana tested positive for the same virus. Another withdrawal leaves the event with just nine fights, the promotion’s lowest number since 2015, per ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. 1udLive体育网

此前在艾琳·阿尔达娜和霍莉·霍尔姆之间的拳击之夜的主要活动已经被推迟,因为阿尔达纳的同一种病毒检测呈阳性。据ESPN的阿里尔·赫尔瓦尼(Ariel Helwani)报道,另一次退出只剩下9场比赛,这是自2015年以来促销活动的最低数量。1udLive体育网


The fight is the UFC’s first in the United States since late June, as the promotion had held four straight events at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi to work through a growing queue of international fights. 1udLive体育网

这是UFC自6月下旬以来在美国的第一场比赛,因为推广活动已经在阿布扎比的Fight Island连续举办了四场活动,以应对越来越多的国际比赛。1udLive体育网


With Aldana out, Saturday’s main event will instead be a middleweight bout between rising star Edmen Shahbazyan and veteran Derek Brunson. Despite the upgrade in status, the fight will remain three rounds. A win could position Shahbazyan for a title fight and a shot at becoming the youngest champion in UFC history. 1udLive体育网
