Big UFC 223 Main Event Change As Tony Ferguson Injured

  • FloCombat Top 10 Finishes- July 2017

People watching my record and say that this guy is tough.

Ferguson is out of the equation and loses his interim lightweight belt, a crushing blow for a man riding a 10-fight win streak.

But Holloway? Holloway never crossed Nurmagomedov's mind as a replacement opponent.

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.

Holloway's last appearance in the octagon was in December, where he scored a third round TKO win over Jose Aldo in UFC 218.

He said: "Words can't express how hurt, frustrated, angry and in disbelief I am right now".

"I respect him, Aloha Max, but he's champion for a reason at 145. Hope, this lesson will teach you watch your mouth". "But now he's in different territory, different weight class, different animal".

"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. Interestingly, Max has only lost once since 2013, and that was to McGregor. "I think Holloway is not any less interesting than Ferguson".

White House confirms Putin's meeting with Trump
President Trump and first lady Melania hosted the annual Easter Egg Roll on the south lawn at the White House early Monday. Putin and Trump are not now scheduled to see each other until November, at the G-20 summit in Argentina.

"I think UFC tell him like hey, we're gonna give you good money so you have to come back". "That's why my name is Khabib". I care about my legacy.

"I want to apologise to all the fans, the UFC, Khabib, my teammates, my coaches, my friends and most importantly my family". "I don't need fight for the money".

Asked whether he thinks he will one day fight McGregor, Nurmagomedov said he's a believer.

McGregor is pencilled in for a return to UFC in September, after last year's blockbuster boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

But be that as it may, Nurmagomedov also knows Holloway hasn't faced anyone like him.

The end of 2017 did not go well for former middleweight champion Michael Bisping. Why not? For his legacy and my legacy, it's very important. Unfortunately, Ferguson was forced to withdraw just six days before the fight after suffering a torn knee ligament, per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

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