Nganou step in bro. You need to avenge you loss vs Lewis and you tired of waiting to fight.

ESPN is shady; headline on ESPN right now is Curtis tests positive and fight off with Lewis.  If you say in combat sports that someone tested positive...obviously we think steroids or USADA.  They just have a headline saying tests positive...so I am in shock and click the link and it says covid 19.  Shady ESPN....real shady.  They should say covid 19 in the headline.

Most HWs don't have to weight cut, and Francis is likely one. But still, likely much too late even if everyone involved wanted this.

Weigh ins are happening. It’s probably too late to screen someone for Covid and get it approved by the commission in time.

Nah, I think people associate the word positive with covid these days. If it were steroids he tested positive for people would be reading the headline thinking covid.

Wish Bones Jones would step in. He's at 240 lbs now. Let's see how he'd fare against Derrick Lewis.

I know exactly 1 fighter on this card tomorrow and that is Anthony Smith. 2 or 3 other names ring a bell but I have no idea who they are. 

Has there been a worse card? I am sure there has but can't think of one right now.

He probably couldn't make the 265-lbs HW limit on short notice. He JUST made the cut for his last fight on his second weigh-in.
