Paige VanZant’s husband Austin Vanderford was recently pulled from Bellator 246 after testing positive for COVID-19 for a second time and now it may be PVZ’s turn to battle the illness.
The former UFC star recently took to Instagram to reveal that Vanderford may have given her COVID-19 and PVZ is asking fans to help her in this battle:
Well..... we are officially sick. We need your help though. So, Austin was starting to get sick and tested positive. I immediately went and got tested and it came back negative.... the next day I started getting sick and have progressively been getting worse the last few days. Today I feel absolutely terrible!!!!! I posted the full video on our YouTube and we need some advice. Do I have Covid, or something else? I have a 102 fever and tons of other symptoms. Has he been sick this whole time since he tested positive a month ago. I am so confused by all of this. We are staying home but can’t seems to find any answers. Should I go get tested again???? Please watch, the link is in my bio. LMK.
Steven Marrocco of MMA Fighting provided the following transcript of what PVZ said in the Instagram video:
“You gave me corona,” said VanZant to Vanderford.
“I feel terrible and I feel really sick, but I only test negative,” she said.
“I have a fever,” he says. “I’ve lost my sense of taste and smell.”
“And I’ve had a fever of 102 yesterday,” she said.
BKFC President David Feldman also told MMA Fighting that PVZ’s promotional debut could be pushed back if she does test positive for the coronavirus.
