Tony Ferguson Withdraws From UFC 223, Max Holloway Named Replacement

We're not gonna see the real Max Holloway on Saturday.

"I'm not gonna lie, I think he nearly likes the amount of weight he has to lose, because it's a challenge".

It has been written here already that Brooklyn can be a unusual place for MMA and with the history of headlining an event with Ferguson and Nurmagomedov Friday should make for an interesting and probably one of the most watched weigh-ins for MMA fans. "But you never know, this is insane game". When he learned Sunday the fight wouldn't happen, Nurmagomedov was disappointed, but optimistic it could happen soon enough.

"As long as Ferguson is able to walk, we'll demand this fight". McGregor expressed interest last month in returning on short notice against Frankie Edgar at UFC 222, but the promotion doesn't want to bring its top star back under those circumstances. He injured, I injured.

'And Conor is not the guy I want to throw in as a late replacement fighter.

The news initially broke overnight in England when it was still April 1st in the U.S. with reporter Ariel Helwani having to tell fans on Twitter that his news was not an April Fools joke.

Now, "The Eagle" turns his attention to Hawaii's Holloway.

Meanwhile, in addition to Conor McGregor getting stripped of his lightweight title when the UFC 223 main event begins, Ferguson too will be stripped of his interim title, according to White. After this insane string of events, Max Holloway will have a chance to do the same thing in the same two weight classes this Saturday night in Brooklyn. While he admires Holloway's heart, the Russian questions whether it's such a bright idea. "Blessed" is on the road to UFC history and he has no intentions of letting anyone, even Khabib Nurmagomedov, stop him.

"Beating Khabib on six days' notice is a very, very, tough, tough ask. The show will go on with or without him". "And when cage close, when cage close, I'm going to give him a hard 25 minutes".
