Eduardo Garagorri Removed From September 19th UFC Bout Against Mirsad Bektic

Saturday’s UFC card has lost a fight, as Eduardo Garagorri has been withdrawn from his fight against Mirsad Bektic. News of the matchup change was first reported by Damon Martin and Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting.

Garagorri’s removal from the card comes after one of the cornermen for him tested positive for COVID-19.

It is currently not known whether Bektic will get a short-notice opponent.

Bektic looked to snap a two-fight losing streak on the card, as his two more recent outings came against Josh Emmett and Dan Ige.

Garagorri was looking to come back from a loss for the first time in his career, as last November he was stopped via rear naked choke by Ricardo Ramos.

Here’s how Saturday’s show looks with the absence of Garagorri and Bektic. The card is scheduled to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
