Max Holloway to Fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223 After Ferguson Injury

With that in mind, after digesting the news of Ferguson's withdrawal, Nurmagomedov immediately thought about not-yet-stripped lightweight champion Conor McGregor and conveyed that to UFC President Dana White. Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have been scheduled several times previously, with the bout not happening each time due to an injury to one of the two fighters.

If victorious, he would join Randy Couture, B.J. Penn, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre as the only fighters to hold world title in multiple weight classes. You can check out his message here.

As "Blessed" prepared to board a flight for NY to take on Khabib Nurmagomedov this weekend, KHON2 Sports Director Rob DeMello caught up with Holloway at the airport.

"I'm here to fight man".

Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in the special counsel probe to lying to federal agents. Dowd's reported message to the defendants "puts us, yet again, in uncharted waters", he added.

"I don't think Conor McGregor could make the weight on six days notice", White said. "I was like...how do you turn down an opportunity like this?"

But still, to accept this fight in these circumstances, its speaks volumes about Holloway walking the walk, and not just talking the talk.

Khabib tweeted, "Where are you now @thenotorious" but Dana responded telling ESPN, 'I don't think Conor McGregor could make the weight on six days notice. He's a guy I want to make a fight with and have the right amount of time to promote the fight.

"I do know that his time as a 145er was probably going to be on the clock soon, but he had full intentions to defend it two or three more times before he made any moves", Butler-Au said.

"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. It's a shame about the late notice and the weight difference, but this is still one hell of a fight.

"I can't wait. This guy is one of the most feared guys you know?"
