Conor McGregor had a vulgar response to the UFC 223 pull-out

Dana White believes Conor Mc Gregor could face the winner in September

On Sunday night, it was announced that interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson had injured his knee and was ruled out of his UFC 223 main event bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov has since been handed a replacement opponent, featherweight champion Max Holloway.

The victor of Nurmagomedov vs Holloway is expected to be crowned the undisputed lightweight champion, a title now held by the AWOL Conor McGregor.

Even in the insane world of MMA, taking a title fight in a higher weight class without a training camp is unheard of.

Wrapping up this episode the always gracious and super knowledgable Smith, who'll be on color commentary duty for UFC 223, talked about the biggest potentialities and what-ifs that could unfold following this much-anticipated card. "And when you think about it, if he wins this fight, other than Conor McGregor, he will be the only guy to hold two belts at the same time".

"I'll be honest, I'm disappointed in myself a little bit because I kind of had the foresight to see this happening", said Alvarez.

"I think this cements - this takes me to the step of being legendary status, and being a legend", he said earlier in the same Instagram video "But I've got a lot more to do". "This fight is for the title".

"First of all, I want to say thank you to Max, he takes (sic) this fight", "The Eagle" said during the final UFC 223 pre-fight press conference.

I'm here, six days notice.

Holloway said that after pulling out of UFC 222, he owed the UFC. Thus, by taking up this fight, Max Holloway has got on track to establish himself as the "greatest of all time" fighter.

Holloway has won 12 consecutive fights and the 26-year-old could shoot to an unprecedented level of stardom by beating the so far untouchable Nurmagomedov. "Blessed" is on the road to UFC history and he has no intentions of letting anyone, even Khabib Nurmagomedov, stop him.
