UFC rising sensation Jamahal Hill 'coughing up blood' due to coronavirus battle as fight against Paul Craig is postponed

UFC rising star Jamahal Hill's fight against Paul Craig has been postponed after coughing up blood.

Hill has been struggling with coronavirus which has scuppered his scheduled fight.

Hill told TMZ: "You know I contracted COVID a little over a week ago … and uh, s**t ain't been going f**king good for me.

"I started out with a fever and I've been dealing with all types of symptoms ever since then.

"Chest tightness, chest congestion, my breathing is off.

"Even as recent as yesterday, I was coughing … I coughed up blood. I coughed up, spit some mucus out and it was blood inside of it."

The 29-year-old has an unbeaten record in the UFC, winning his eight fights.

Hill earned a big win over Ovince Saint Preux last December and was scheduled to face light-heavyweight Craig on March 20.

UFC star Khamzat Chimaev has also been hit hard by coronavirus and his manager said the fighter thought he was going to die.

Chimaev continues to battle against Covid-19 and his fight with Leon Edwards was axed.
