Max Holloway injured, title defense against Frankie Edgar on hold again

Frankie Edgar is not having a tremendous amount of success when it comes to be able to fight for the UFC featherweight title.  News broke earlier today from an anonymous source close to the Max Holloway fight camp who said that the champion has sustained an injury and will not be defending his belt at UFC 222 next month. The nature of Holloway’s injury has not yet been released.

Holloway was set to defend against Edgar on March 3 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, a fight that was put together for a second time.

The first go-around was to take place in December, but when Edgar sustained an injury he was replaced by former champion Jose Aldo. Holloway had defeated Aldo earlier in 2017 to win the belt, and then successfully defended it six months later.

With Max Holloway injured, the UFC will be scrambling to find a fight replacement for the pay-per-view that is roughly four weeks away. No official bouts have been announced and the actual withdrawal of Holloway from the card has not yet been announced by the UFC either.
