It was announced this morning that two fights have been scratched for tonight's Bellator MMA 250 event at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Nick Newell is out vs. Zach Zane on the three-fight main card, and women's flyweight Veta Arteaga is out vs. Desiree Yanez on the prelims.

No reason was given for Newell's removal beyond that the fighter “couldn’t receive clearance” from the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, but Newell reported he tested positive for COVID-19. Yanez reported on her social network that opponent Arteaga failed a test for COVID-19; this has not been confirmed.

Middleweights Ty Gwerder (5-1) vs. Dalton Rosta (3-0) have now been moved up the main card, which airs on CBS Sports Network at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Damn, that has to be the most unlucky thing that ever happened to Nick Newell

Was looking forward to watching Newell. Bellator has horrible luck lately. Just don’t have the depth. Still a great main event though
