Matt Frevola off of UFC on ESPN 11 after cornerman Billy Quarantillo tests positive for coronavirus

Matt Frevola is out of UFC on ESPN 11 this Saturday, June 20.

The promotion pulled Frevola from his fight with Frank Camacho after his cornerman, UFC featherweight Billy Quarantillo, tested positive for COVID-19. Despite testing negative on two separate occasions, Frevola was removed for precautionary reasons.

The 30-year-old took to Instagram to share his disappointment about the situation.

Quarantillo is three weeks removed from a decision win against Spike Carlyle at UFC on ESPN 9 on May 30. 

Jacare Souza and two of his cornermen also tested positive for coronavirus. It forced him out of a middleweight bout with Uriah Hall at UFC 249 on May 9. Ian Heinisch’s cornerman also tested positive, but remained on the card after the test came back as a false negative before UFC 250 on June 6. 

Matt Frevola is coming off two-consecutive wins against Jalin Turner and Luis Pena.

Camacho is 1-1 since moving back to lightweight. He most recently suffered a first-round submission loss to Beneil Dariush at UFC on ESPN+ 20 in October 2019. 

There’s been no announcement of a replacement for Camacho as of yet.
