Khamzat Chimaev in Covid-19 Recovery as Leon Edwards Fight is Scrapped.
Reports from the US have confirmed that Chimaev was forced off the card after medical tests showed that he had not fully recovered from the effects of COVID-19.
MMA Junkie reported via Chimaev’s team that the undefeated welterweight tested positive for coronavirus in early-December but, despite seeming to shake off the illness, X-rays of his lungs showed that he hasn’t returned to full health.
That assessment was subsequently reported by ESPN, who shared a statement from Chimaev’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz. It read: “Khamzat had coronavirus and when he went back to the gym, his lungs did not recover 100%. He needs time for his lungs to recover, and right now it’s about taking that necessary time.”
