Tomorrow night’s UFC fight between Derrick Lewis and Curtis Blaydes has been canceled after Blaydes tested positive for the coronavirus. The news was broken by MMA reporter Ariel Helwani via Instagram earlier today:

In the wake of the cancellation, the co-main event of Anthony Smith vs Devin Clark has been moved to the main event and bumped up to five rounds. Per Helwani, the UFC has expressed interest in rebooking the bout for December though no contracts have been signed.
