Filthy Four Daily co-host, pro wrestler and MMA fighter "Filthy" Tom Lawlor has COVID-19.

Revealing the news in an optimistic tweet Saturday, Lawlor said that at some point over the last two weeks, he got the virus but is asymptomatic. He withdrew from a Friday indie booking against fellow UFC alum Stephan Bonnar, but pledged to return as soon as he can.

Lawlor was recently announced to be part of Major League Wrestling's mid-November restart. The tapings were more than two weeks ago -- before when Lawlor believes he contracted the virus. He is also a member of the Professional Fighters League roster, but the group has no events scheduled until April.

As the indies have picked back up, the 37-year-old Lawlor has been wrestling more frequently including on two New Japan Pro Wrestling Lion's Break shows and in several matches as part of last month's GCW Collective weekend.
