While Souza will not fight, the UFC 249 card will go on as planned, Hunter Campbell, executive vice president and chief business officer of UFC, told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith on Friday.

Souza had trained in Orlando and just arrived in Jacksonville.  One of his family members reportedly tested positive for Covid-19.

The UFC has conferred with Florida state athletic officials, who said the fights can go on as scheduled because the system worked in Souza's case. 

UFC 249's main card begins at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view with preliminaries beginning at 6 p.m. on ESPN. 

Betting was available on all other fights.
