On Friday, reports from Combate's Marcelo Barone indicates that flyweight contender Deiveson Figueiredo tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of his rematch against Joseph Benavidez. The Brazilian had already tested positive for the virus back in May. The UFC plans on testing him again but in case of a second positive test, Figueiredo will be forced to withdraw from his title bout against Benavidez on July 18. Deiveson Figueiredo\u2019s status, his manager Wallid Ismail tells me Figueiredo had COVID 2 months ago. He tested positive today again. He is scheduled to get tested again tomorrow at 11 am local. They are hoping it\u2019s a false positive and he\u2019ll be able to fly to Abu Dhabi Sunday. https:\/\/twitter.com\/arielhelwani\/status\/1281760663703085058?ref_srctwsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1281760663703085058%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_urlhttps%3A%2F%2Fpublish.twitter.com%2F%3Fquery%3Dhttps3A2F2Ftwitter.com2Farielhelwani2Fstatus2F1281760663703085058widget%3DTweet After a first fight that resulted in a no contest, Figueiredo and Benavidez are ready to battle again for the belt left vacant by Henry Cejudo. The Brazilian failed to make weight for the fight, which has been a constant issue during his UFC stint. But with a 7-1 record in the UFC and an exciting style, Figueiredo remains one of the most exciting flyweight fighters.
