As bad as I wanted this to be some kind of April fools joke, it isn't.

Tony Ferguson has been pulled due to injury. Apparently the injury happened while doing media obligations. He tore his LCL and is going to need surgery to repair it. This it the fourth time this match has been scheduled and has never come to fruition.

Luckily Max Holloway stepped in on 6 days notice to take on Khabib for the title.

If Max wins this him and McGregor will need to fight next to see who's the real two title king. Really sucks we won't be able to see this happen yet again.

I saw this and thought it was a joke at first but honestly I'm excited for this fight. I also don't know you just trip and tear your lcl right off the bone but oh well. This is a fight we'll never get to see and that sucks

Max has been pulled due to safety concerns around cutting weight. Anthony Pettis and Al Iaquinta are the top contenders to replace him.

Looking more and more like it's going to be Al Iaquinta vs. Khabib.

It's now confirmed Khabib vs. Al is the new main even. Al weighed in a little over the mark so he cannot win the belt if he pulls it off against Khabib tomorrow.

Pettis would've been the better fight imo.. Also why does Khabib get the belt if he wins but Laquinta cant? Seems weird.
This whole card got thrown into a ruckus because some child wanted to throw a temper tantrum, this is so embarrassing for the sport.

Iaquinta won't be able to win the title because he missed weight. Seems like the NYSAC is causing more problems and are not going to let him reweigh. They are pretty new to MMA but some of the stuff they've done has been ridiculous.

It gets even crazier if he pulls off this win against Khabib. Tony Ferguson is the intern champion right now so if he wins that means there is still not going to be an undisputed champ. After all this leadup of Dana saying this was going to be for the undisputed title.

When I was watching the fight I was shocked that Khabib didn't wrestle as much. It was still a good fight imo but Khabib definitely needs to work on his stand up.
