Report: Jared Gordon’s Corners Positive For Covid-19, Paul Felder/Eric Nicksick To Corner His Fight

Jared Gordon and Chris Fishgold are set to meet this coming Wednesday Night on the preliminary card of UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Ige.

Catastrophe struck for Gordon when all of his cornermen tested positive for the coronavirus, so they will not be able to help Gordon out on Wednesday Night.

However, some heroes have stepped forward in Paul Felder and Dan Ige's coach Eric Nicksick will corner Gordon so he can still fight Fishgold. Felder will provide color commentary on the same card, but will obviously be away from the booth for that fight.

Sucker Punch Entertainment revealed the news through Instagram:

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Breaking: @jaredflashgordon ‘s coaches and team all tested positive for CV and were not able to make the trip to corner him. With no corners or coaches Jared was determined to fight and pressed through set back after setback and still made his way to Fight Island. In an unprecedented move, long time friend, training partner and fellow SP teammate, @felderpaul is scheduled to commentate the remaining events on Fight Island and has gotten clearance to come off the desk to help his friend through the fight during the event. Also long time SP friend @eric_xcmma who is there with fellow SP client @dynamitedan808 will step up and help Jared in his fight. #1team1dream #represented
