Anthony Hernandez Tests Positive For COVID-19, Gets Fight Against Rodolfo Vieira Moved To February 16th

After testing positive for COVID-19, Anthony Hernandez has been removed from his January 16th UFC booking against Rodolfo Vieira. The fight has been moved to a February 13th UFC card due to the test.

Hernandez announced the positive test through his Instagram page on Friday.

“Bad news is the fights delayed — 2020 left me with the COVID[-19],” said Hernandez in his statement.

The fight joins a UFC lineup that does not have a location confirmed for it yet.

Hernandez will look to bounce back from a loss in February. His last fight was back in May, where Kevin Holland stopped him within a minute with strikes.

Still undefeated as a pro, Vieira won his seventh fight in March, defeating Saparbeg Safarov with an arm triangle choke.

Here are the other fights reported for UFC’s February 13th card currently.
