This Saturday night, was supposed to be the fight UFC fans around the world have been waiting four years for the fight between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov it was gonna be for the Lightweight World Title but Ferguson had to pull out due to a knee injury suffered a few days ago.
Instead of Tony/Khabib fight we are now getting the UFC Featherweight Champion, Max Holloway stepping up and agreeing to a fight with Khabib on six days notice for the Undisputed UFC Lightweight Title. I'm not sure if Ferguson is still the "Interim" champion but I'd assume he would get the winner of this fight as soon as he is ready. Good on Max for stepping up to the plate and wanting to fight Khabib on such short notice. Now the question is can Khabib make weight he has a history of not making weight, so hopefully he does his part and makes weight because this fight is gonna be fantastic even on such short notice!
