Two Bouts Canceled On The Bellator 250 Card

The Bellator 250 card has two fewer fights.

Bellator 250 goes down tonight, October 29. It’ll be headlined by Gegard Mousasi vs. Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima for the vacant middleweight title. One main card bout that was set featured flyweight action between Veta Arteaga vs. Desiree Yanez. That plan has gone awry.

Yanez took to her Instagram account to reveal that Arteaga was pulled after testing positive for COVID-19.

*sigh* well guys… my fight is unfortunately cancelled tonight due to my opponent getting tested positive for Covid. I really don’t know what to say other than I was more than ready for battle and still am. @bellatormma is going to get this match up back as soon as they possibly can. I am beyond devastated, but everything happens for a reason. More time to prepare. I love you all and the support has been so unreal to me. Don’t worry, the fight will happen soon enough. 🙏 and luckily for me, @bellatormma is stuck with me for a good while 🤪. — to my sponsors, I will be honoring you guys for whenever we get this match up going again. I love y’all and couldn’t do this without all. — I love all my fans, my coaches, my managers, and my teammates for constantly sticking by my side! My time is coming. I just know it. 🙏🤍
