No April Fools Here: Tony Ferguson Out of UFC 223

The former UFC champion mentioned that once the promotion asked him for potentially stepping in to save the card, which in turn he told them that he was unable to make the lightweight limit on such short notice. At least, it was enough time if his tweet about "staying ready" was in reference to the lightweight title fight. For Holloway, with a win, he'd be the second fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously and the first since McGregor did so back in 2016.

He post message saying like "I'm staying ready bla bla bla" but now when UFC call him he's not ready... "I think Holloway is not any less interesting than Ferguson". "Now we're here. I'm a fighter, I'm not a matchmaker", he said.

So why did the UFC decide not to schedule a fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov for this weekend's "UFC 223" event? Happy Easter to everyone out there, I believe there is a silver lining in this nightmare of a reality, because this isn't an April Fools.

The good news is that the undefeated Avar mixed martial artist will still have a shot at the UFC Lightweight Championship... that is, against the UFC's Featherweight Champion Max Holloway.

Nurmagomedov said he's begun watching film of Holloway and is impressed with the Hawaiian's boxing and movement, but doesn't plan on allowing him any space to work. Tony Ferguson suffered a freak injury by tweaking his knee while on the set of FOX this Thursday for media obligations, tearing his LCL off the bone. Max Holloway will attempt to become a two-division UFC champion when he steps in for injured Tony Ferguson at UFC 223 in Brooklyn.

But if Nurmagomedov wants (and gets) St-Pierre instead, where does that leave McGregor? "He's a fighter's champion".

Ferguson is out of the equation and loses his interim lightweight belt, a crushing blow for a man riding a 10-fight win streak. "They just did that with Robert Whittaker previous year". Of course Georges. If UFC give choice then I'm gonna bring Georges, but 100%, the UFC are going to push me vs Conor. "He is already middleweight and welterweight champion".
