Max Holloway Out of UFC 222

In what was supposed to be a featherweight title fight against Frankie Edgar, UFC 222’s main event has been scrapped. Confirming it was a leg injury that sidelined him, Max recently tweeted about his injury and subsequent removal from the card using his signature phrase, “it is what it is”.

Nothing certain yet but contender Brian Ortega is rumored to be slotted into the spot to fight Frankie for potentially (yet another) interim championship depending on how long Max will be out of action.
