The UFC lost another fight today when the scheduled bout of Drakkar Klose vs Luis Pena was been pulled from the UFC Vegas 19 card just hours before the event was set to start.

Pena broke the news via his Twitter, stating that one of Klose’s cornermen had tested positive for COVID-19 and the fight was no longer taking place.

Pena was clearly upset with the news, as he’s been looking to get back into the win column after a loss to Khama Worthy last June.

Will Drakkar Klose vs Luis Pena Be Rescheduled?

It is not known what the UFC’s plans are for this fight in the future, but one can imagine that they will be looking to reschedule this fight for a later date since neither fighter was at fault.
