Dwight Grant is one of the latest UFC fighters who has had their next bout canceled due to COVID-19, as the welterweight’s announced he’s no longer fighting at UFC 256.

Grant was booked to fight Li Jingliang at this Saturday’s card. But, recently Grant announced the news below.

Hey what’s up everyone? I gotta give y’all some bad news, I’m not going to be fighting this weekend. My last Covid 19 test came back positive but Luckily the symptoms haven’t been severe. This news hit especially hard because of all the hard work and excitement I have for this fight. It’s out of my control so im not going to try not to dwell on it too much, but to call it disappointing is an understatement.

So now Im focusing all my energy on getting better. Im going to quarantine and by the grace of God, be able to fight again soon. Thank you everyone for all your support. Ill be back even more determined and fired up to go.

The 36-year-old Grant (10-3) is coming off a KO loss to Daniel Rodriguez in August.
