Sabah Homasi just competed on the Bellator 250 card, which saw a scheduled main card bout between Veta Arteaga and Desiree Yanez canceled due to a positive COVID-19 test on Arteaga’s behalf.
When it comes to COVID-19 as a whole, it just doesn’t make any sense to Homasi.
“(Expletive) this COVID (expletive), first of all, this bull(expletive)-ass virus,” Homasi said after the event (via MMA Junkie). “You’ve got places closing down … people wearing masks, people freaking out. … This is a very contagious virus, right? We’ve got to be (expletive) scared of this (expletive)? If (Nick Newell) had it – which, I think it’s a false positive – if he had it, so many other people would have had it. He’s literally grappling right next to me with his buddy, training and whatnot, and then he tests positive, but his buddy doesn’t? It doesn’t make any sense, man. I just think this whole (expletive) is a fluke. You’ve got 99.7 (percent) survival rate on it. I mean, there’s more deadlier things out here than the coronavirus or the (expletive) COVID-19 or whatever. So don’t even ask me stupid-ass questions about COVID. (Expletive) that (expletive).”
While Homasi believes the survival rate of COVID-19 is 99.7%, a report from World-O-Meters states that the survival rate is 99% for ongoing cases, while the survival rate is 97% for closed cases.
