Ronaldo Souza tests positive for coronavirus ahead of UFC 249, card will still go on

Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza’s upcoming bout against Uriah Hall at UFC 249 on Saturday will have to wait.

Souza tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, according to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. The fight between the two has been canceled, though UFC 249 will still go on as scheduled at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

Souza, per the report, arrived in Florida on Wednesday and told UFC officials that a family member had tested positive. He was not showing any symptoms. Souza was then tested and reportedly isolated, though he weighed in and appeared in pictures with UFC president Dana White on Friday before his positive test came back. Souza was wearing gloves and a mask during his weigh-in and faceoff.

UFC officials, per ESPN, worked with Florida athletic officials about the status of UFC 249 as a whole after the positive test. They determined that it can go forward “because the system worked.” Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje are set to highlight the card in an interim lightweight title bout.

There were more than 1.2 million confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the United States as of Friday night, according to The New York Times, and more than 77,000 deaths attributed to the virus. There were nearly 40,000 cases in Florida alone.

White has been trying to hold UFC 249 for quite some time now, repeatedly ignoring advice from medical experts and state mandates after the event’s initial location — the Barclays Center in New York — canceled on him due to the coronavirus outbreak. He even tried to hold it on tribal land in California last month after several other options failed before ESPN and Disney finally shut him down.

After most of Florida reopened and deemed sports as essential businesses, however, White got it and two others scheduled.

He seemed very confident about the event on Friday, too, and even said that President Donald Trump will be watching to use UFC 249 as an example for how to open the rest of the country despite the pandemic still raging.

So Dana knew Jacare had it and continued to take pictures and stand next to him.....

Dana is in contact with everyone and if he gets it and spreads it........

UFC statement says two of his cornermen also have coronavirus.

Let's be real clear about what happened:
Dana and the UFC appear to have knowingly allowed a fighter with a family case to break quarantine, travel, and wander around a hotel and Jacksonville for TWO DAYS while likely contagious to coaches, fighters, trainers, public. Judging by all the pictures the “quarantine” didn’t look too strict.

"Souza, who trained in Orlando, Florida, arrived in Jacksonville on Wednesday and *informed UFC officials that a family member might have tested positive.* Souza was asymptomatic but was monitored and tested, and Friday the test came back positive

The timeline is really important here. Souza was:

Training in Orlando
Wed - has known case in his family, drives to Jax anyway. Tested.

Weds-Fri - wanders around who knows where, contacting (and infecting?) people

Fri - test returns, fight is off.


Utter negligence.

That sucks, the fight card remains which is all I care about.

Funny thinking how he was positive and clearly came in contact with everyone there.

I’m surprised the fights haven’t been cancelled. Is anyone surprised though? I bet more fighters will test positive

I know eh? I still can’t believe they were actually allowed to have an event. Not that I’m complaining :biggrin:

Can’t wait for the fights :hand2:

Your trolling but I agree. I can't golf half a kilometre (suck my metric dick) away from home by myself but this clown travelled between cities to be in a place known to be full of people after knowing he likely had it. Fuck all of this nonsense

:lol: a lot of it doesn't make any sense does it? I teach golf for a living and the golf course I work at was closed for almost 2 months and just reopened. if anything would be safe you'd think its golf.

whats the over under on how many fighters test positive after the fights?
I say 5

:hand2: meet you guys in chat for some great fights. can't wait :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

They say mask and sanitizing the shit out of everything will prevent spreading. No different than stores being open or delivery people or any other service that's open, except ufc is actually testing. It will be interesting to see if anyone else comes out covid, but they wont be able to retest until after the event anyway. UFC is being a Guinea pig right now will answer questions on social distancing and public exposure. All I care is they green lit the rest of the card :twisted:
