Marion Reneau positive for COVID-19, bout vs. Macy Chiasson pushed back three weeks

Another fight week change has hit the UFC Fight Night 184 lineup due to COVID-19.

Marion Reneau (9-6-1 MMA, 5-5-1 UFC) on Wednesday announced on Instagram that she has tested positive for COVID-19, and her women’s bantamweight fight against Macy Chiasson (6-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) has been postponed. UFC officials have not yet made a formal announcement.

Reneau said the fight has been moved from Saturday to later this month on the UFC’s Feb. 27 card, and that she and Chiasson agreed to the new date.

UFC Fight Night 184 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The event streams on ESPN+. Reneau and Chiasson had a spot on the main card. It is not yet known if a preliminary card bout will move up to keep the main card at six fights, or if the show will go on with five on the main card.

Reneau is mired in three-fight skid with a decision loss to Cat Zingano in 2018, one to Yana Kunitskaya in 2019, and one to Raquel Pennington in June 2020. Prior to that, she was on a 3-0-1 run that included a submission win over Olympic medalist and former title challenger Sara McMann in February 2018.

Chiasson rebounded from the first loss of her pro career with a unanimous decision win over Shanna Young about a year ago. That got her back on track after a decision loss to Lina Lansberg in September 2019 that came after a perfect 5-0 start, as well as wins on Season 28 of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

With the postponement, the UFC Fight Night 184 lineup now includes:

MAIN CARD (ESPN+, 8 p.m. ET)

  • Alistair Overeem vs. Alexander Volkov
  • Frankie Edgar vs. Cory Sandhagen
  • Manel Kape vs. Alexandre Pantoja
  • Askar Askar vs. Cody Stamann
  • Beneil Dariush vs. Diego Ferreira

  • Danilo Marques vs. Mike Rodriguez
  • Martin Day vs. Timur Valiev
  • Justin Jaynes vs. Devonte Smith
  • Joselyne Edwards vs. Karol Rosa
