LFA 84 has made some last-minute changes, with welterweights Andre Fialho and Tyler Ray being taken off of their Friday night card. Reported by Amy Kaplan of Fansided, Ray and Fialho become the second and third fighters taken off the card, as Natan Levy was pulled earlier in the week.
In a statement made by LFA, the three fighters were removed “after contract tracing determined that they were in close contact with people who recently tested positive for Coronavirus [COVID-19].”
Ray and Fialho were booked for different fights. Due to the card changes, their respective opponents, Maycon Mendonca and Kassius Kayne, have been paired against each other.
