For the third time, Khamzat Chimaev Vs Leon Edwards has been called off. UFC president Dana White told ESPN on Thursday that Chimaev was forced to withdraw from the bout due to lingering physical effects caused by COVID-19.
White says the promotion will need to move on while Chimaev recovers. They are now seeking a new opponent for Edwards.
Edwards hasn’t fought since 20109 when he beat Rafael dos Anjos.
