On Wednesday, UFC President Dana White announced that the upcoming bantamweight main event between Holly Holm and Irene Aldana has been postponed.
Shortly after the announcement, top bantamweight contender Irene Aldana took to social media to share her side of the story.
I deeply thank the fans and all the media for their messages of support and the interest shown in the news of the postponement of my fight in 1st August vs. Holly Holm.
We are going through a very complicated world situation and my country try is not the exception: COVID-19. Despite the face that we have made a camp in total isolation with the health measures recommended by the authorities, unfortunately I had some symptoms and in the pertinent examinations it was postivie.
I am still recovering: the first days were complicated in terms of symptoms, but I am much better.
You know my professionalism and my interest in a commitment of this size. My enthusiasm and preparation is and will be total.
I deeply thank the UFC, its president Dana White, Mick Maynard and my opponent and her team for the understanding shown, we will be ready for the new date the company assigns us within the next few months.
