UFC commentator and former lightweight fighter Paul Felder was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The 35-year-old was expected to be a part of the UFC ‘Fight Island’ commentary team for all four events, however, that is no longer the case.

“Din Thomas tested positive,” Bisping stated. “Mike Brown, he tested positive. There’s been about five or six positive tests.
“I do know this. Paul Felder, poor guy, he was sat next to Din Thomas on the flight. So, he passed his test, but they’re erring on the side of caution. I think he’s going to be quarantined for 14 f**king days.
“I get his work,” Bisping joked. “I get to stay here a little bit longer now, commentating. I’m sorry, Paul, but I’m not that sorry cause I will be taking your cash, baby boy.”

Get ready for a higher rate of “He’s hurt” and over exaggerated shrieks of excitement for the DWCS fights. I do like Bisping w/ the prospect fights though, he seems more interested pic.twitter.com/ty1aqoEtvP

Testing has been rampant and a number of positive tests have come back. Along with American Top Team’s Thomas and Brown, fellow ATT fighter Pedro Munhoz was also pulled from his scheduled July 15 fight with Frankie Edgar.
