COVID-19 claims another at UFC Fight Night 183: Lungiambula-Roberson scrapped again

COVID-19 is yet again the reason for another UFC fight cancellation – a second time for the same booking.

The middleweight fight between Dalcha Lungiambula (10-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Karl Roberson (9-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) is off Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 183 card. The UFC updated a Thursday release to announce the fight has been scrapped. In addition, Roberson posted on his Instagram stories that COVID-19 was the culprit.

The fight originally was booked for UFC 256 six days ago, but was moved to Saturday after Roberson tested positive for COVID-19. It appears he is not yet clear from his infection. It is not yet known if the promotion will keep the fight intact and move it to 2021, or move on from it altogether.

UFC Fight Night 183 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card streams on ESPN+.

With the latest cancellation, just hours before Friday’s official weigh-ins, UFC Fight Night 183 now includes:

MAIN CARD (ESPN+, 7 p.m. ET)

  • Stephen Thompson vs. Geoff Neal
  • Jose Aldo vs. Marlon Vera
  • Michel Pereira vs. Khaos Williams
