Masvidal and Covington Respond to Burns Withdrawal From UFC 251


The UFC learns the hard way that this coronavirus case is far from over.

The promotion made many changes to its first event at “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi due to COVID-19, and last night lost the fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns for the welterweight title after Burns had tested positive for the virus.

Now the two men most likely to receive the call from the UFC to replace Burns are reacting to the news on Twitter, and it appears they are both ready to intervene if the UFC gives them a call.
