  • Ferguson & Nurmagomedov To Fight For McGregors Belt At UFC 223

And White confirmed that the victor of the bout would walk away as the undisputed UFC lightweight champion, with the title departing the waist of two-weight champ Conor McGregor in the process.

So, Holloway has agreed to fight one of the best grapplers in the game, who has never lost, on just six days notice.

"Yesterday after training we were going to go home, going to hotel to relax and my brother, Ali, told me he's out", Nurmagomedov said. 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.

While UFC head Dana White has already said that the promotion has no intention of attempting to organize a fight between the two for the fifth time, Nurmagomedov senior says that a fight with Ferguson is still a key consideration for his son.

Khabib Nurmagomedov believes that he poses new threats for Max Holloway, and he is unsure whether Max Holloway understands what he is getting into. 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. He's a guy that I want to make a fight with, have the right amount of time to rpomote the fight, have the fight in the right place. This guy has 12 [-fight] win streak in the UFC. "So yeah, no. I'm not interesting in asking Conor to take the fight".


This is the fourth time this fight has been booked and fallen through.

The new UFC 223 headliner almost could have featured the featherweight division's No. 1 contender instead of its champion.

But if the shoe was on the other foot, Nurmagomedov would not have accepted a fight against Holloway on six days notice.

Should Max Holloway have taken this fight on such short notice?

"There was a while when I was just looking for an honourable way out, I felt satisfied, like I proved everything I needed to prove", Rousey said. No one is wrestling with him - Now, he has different opponent: "young, hungry, bigger than him, more strong than him, more good wrestling pressure, undefeated, I think it's going to be a long night for him".
