QQ: Holloway's coach says bout with Khabib not for undisputed title

QQ: Holloway's coach says bout with Khabib not for undisputed title

In a Twitter post, Ferguson wrote that he suffered the injury in an accident on a studio set while fulfilling his prefight media obligations on Friday.

This is the fourth time this fight has been booked and fallen through. The pair was scheduled to meet in December 2015, and again in April 2016, and once more last March. Both competitors have been forced to withdraw on two occasions. This fight was to be for the undisputed lightweight title now held by Conor McGregor, who is expected to be stripped of the title upon the first bell of the UFC 223 main event.

For the record, Dana called me yesterday to see if I would step in against Khabib since Max hadn't responded yet.

As of now, Conor McGregor is still the official lightweight champion, but he'll lose that designation after Saturday's headliner.

UFC president Dana White said today that McGregor was not considered to step in and face Nurmagomedov, as he would not make the weight in time.

But still, to accept this fight in these circumstances, its speaks volumes about Holloway walking the walk, and not just talking the talk. Holloway already holds the 145-pound featherweight belt and he will move up to 155 pounds on short notice.

"... I was like, how do you turn down an opportunity like this?" In a unusual bit of irony, Holloway holds a title that McGregor held and never lost as well.

In a sit-down interview with ESPN's Brett Okamoto, former UFC women's bantamweight champion and now WWE competitor Ronda Rousey broke her silence in regards to her MMA career.

"I care about my legacy", Nurmagomedov said. "So I felt obligated to do more than what I actually wanted to".

Enter featherweight champion Max Holloway, who was announced as Ferguson's replacement on just six days' notice.

MMA fans have gone used to turning on their televisions on Saturday night and tuning into UFC. The report was also published on the UFC website. He loaded the card with other highly attractive matches, giving himself a fallback position if the fight were canceled.
