Max Holloway Wants To Find Out Who's Better At UFC 223

UFC 223 Tony Ferguson UFC

White clarified in an interview that ESPN that once the fight actually took place, the wheels would be set in motion as it relates to making a decision about McGregor's status as champion. The reason being that Tony Ferguson has been forced out of the bout due to a knee injury.

"For the record, [UFC President Dana White] called me yesterday to see if I would step in against Khabib since Max hadn't responded yet", Ortega wrote on Twitter.

Holloway-Nurmagomedov will now be the new headliner for UFC 223 on April 7.

"I do know that his time as a 145er was probably going to be on the clock soon, but he had full intentions to defend it two or three more times before he made any moves", Butler-Au said.

On learning that he set to replace Tony Ferguson: "The news was insane". However, unlike McGregor, Holloway will have to pull off the feat on six days notice against the unbeaten Nurmagomedov after stepping up for interim champion Tony Ferguson.

The odds for this weekend's lightweight title clash between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway have been released and they're very much in favour of the Russian. When asked if he would be willing to book the fight a fifth time, White responded, "Hell no".




"I'm here to fight man". I think about maybe like [Michael] Chiesa or [Paul] Felder, [Al] Iaquinta, [Anthony] Pettis, somebody because these guys fight with me on the same night.

He tweeted: "To keep it real here @TheNotoriousMMA is one of the fakest champions ufc ever had". Aside from being the champion of another division, Holloway also is dealing with an ankle injury, which kept him from competing in his own scheduled main event last month at UFC 222.

Holloway already holds the 145-pound featherweight belt, and he will move up to 155 pounds on short notice.

"I do not understand", Nurmagomedov said. But now, he is on different territory, different weight class, different animals.

"If I beat Conor or Georges St-Pierre, which one is bigger for my legacy?"
