COVID-19 Forces Hannah Goldy Out of UFC 260 Debut Against Jessica Penne

UFC’s March 27th pay-per-view card has lost a flyweight bout, as a positive COVID-19 test has forced Hannah Goldy out of a fight against Jessica Penne.

The fight was scheduled to happen during the preliminary card for UFC 260 at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Goldy announced the positive test via social media on Wednesday.

“[I] Flew out to Vegas and tested positive for COVID. I have never felt better, stronger or more complete. I was so ready to perform for y’all Saturday, unfortunately that was not Gods plan,” said Goldy via Instagram.

The fight has since been re-booked, now being placed on UFC’s April 17th card, per a report from Nolan King of MMA Junkie.

Goldy was scheduled to make her second UFC appearance. She lost her promotional debut in 2019, dropping a scorecard bout to Miranda Granger.

Penne was set to make her return after nearly four years outside of the cage.

UFC 260 is currently scheduled to be headlined by UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou.
