The heavyweight fight between Curtis Blades and Derrick Lewis, canceled due to Razor’s positive coronavirus test, is scheduled for February 20.
This was announced in an interview with Fanatics View by the second number of the UFC heavyweights rating.
“They want our fight to be the main event,” Blades said. “They originally moved it to 20 January, but it looks like this card has a new main event, so we got moved to 20 February. I haven’t received the contract yet, so it’s possible that they can replay everything again and return us to the January card. I am not completely sure of the date, but I know for sure that they are working on it. “
Curtis Blades, 29, leads a four-win streak, defeating Alexander Volkov by unanimous decision in the last fight.
Derrick Lewis, 35, won three matches in a row, finishing in the previous match by technical knockout of Alexey Oleinik.
