Max Holloway Talks About Accepting Khabib Nurmagomedov Fight On Short Notice

03 April 2018, 04:45 | Percy Christensen

It was no April Fool's Day joke this time, as interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson indeed suffered an injury that will knock him from the planned UFC 223 main event this Saturday vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Saturday's new main event fight between Nurmagomedov and Holloway will be for the UFC lightweight championship, according to White.

The highly anticipated lightweight title fight between Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov was shelved after "El Cucuy" tore a ligament while fulfilling media obligations six days from their 155-lbs showdown. "This fight is for the title". While he considers Nurmagomedov an "animal", Holloway sees the Russian as just another fighter. "I think Conor could return in September, and it could be against one of these guys".

Nurmagomedov, who is now on a 25 fight unbeaten streak, was informed about Tony Ferguson's injury on Sunday, but like many people, he thought that it was an April Fools joke.

"I respect him, Aloha Max, but he's champion for a reason at 145. I can't wait. This guy is one of the most feared guys", said Holloway. If you watch, he fight [Jose] Aldo twice, he fight Pettis, Jeremy Stephens, Ricardo Lamas - if you watch all of these guys, nobody wrestles.

Firefighters were "also using gas meters and all available equipment to safely conduct this on-going search", the statement said. Rescuers were not able to enter the drainage area because it was a hazardous environment, according to spokesman for the L.A.

"I never fight for the money but every person is different", Nurmagomedov said. So I was like, how do you turn down an opportunity like this? "April 7 is going to be a great night", he said. Bless his heart, he's made his money, he's doing his thing, he's got an education for his kid, that's what we all want.With that much loot, what are you going to do now?

With Conor McGregor previously holding both belts, the Irishman seems destined to face the victor in a massive fight later this year. The news has robbed UFC fans of one of the most compelling UFC match-ups - for the fourth time.

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

"GSP", Ferguson said. "I mean, that's what I signed up for in the beginning".

The end of 2017 did not go well for former middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
