UFC 223: 5 Crazy Predictions

If he wins, he would be the youngest fighter to hold two titles and just the second UFC fighter to hold two belts at the same time. Max Holloway will attempt to become a two-division UFC champion when he steps in for injured Tony Ferguson at UFC 223 in Brooklyn. While there's no legitimate way to knock on UFC 223's new Nurmagomedov vs. Holloway headliner, it's safe to say the promotion had a solid backup plan in place in the event that Holloway wasn't able to step up.

"I saw [Max's manager Brian Butler's] number show up on my phone, and he was like, "Hey man, do you think you can get Max down to 155?" and he gave me his weight".

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.

He respects Holloway as the featherweight champion and is impressed by his overall resume, which includes 12-fight streak with wins over the likes of Jose Aldo (twice), Pettis, Ricardo Lamas, Cub Swanson, and Jeremy Stephens.

When the news of Ferguson's injury was announced by UFC President Dana White, mixed martial art fans around the world held their breath and waited for McGregor's response. "I've always been interested in this fight with Khabib", Ortega told TMZ Sports. "That's a tough weight cut for him", White said. Nurmagomedov questioned Max Holloway's reasoning and he believes that he is only taking this fight for the paycheque.

"I think Conor could return in September, and it could be against one of these guys". All we know is McGregor, who also vacated the UFC featherweight championship before fighting Mayweather in a boxing match last August, won't be on this Saturday's UFC 223 card. As a result, the 34-year old Ferguson will be forced to undergo surgery.

"That goes away", White said when asked about Ferguson's title. But it's fair to wonder whether McGregor will fight the victor of Saturday's showdown.
