The American mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Spike Carlyle appeared this Friday before his rival compatriot Billy Quarantillo wearing a particular mask, during a meeting prior to the fight of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) in Las Vegas (USA).
In accordance with the new championship safety protocols, implemented by the coronavirus pandemic, event participants must wear face masks.
Carlyle himself published a video of the peculiar moment on his Instagram account. “I am going to crucify those demons tomorrow,” he wrote on the social network, and he agreed to feel some resentment because Quarantillo refused to give him “a proper hug.”
The UFC tournament will take place this May 30 in Las Vegas and will be the fourth after the resumption of the season. Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns will face off in the main fight of the night, says CBS Sports.
