Max Holloway Issues A Statment On His Withdrawl From UFC 222

Max Holloway, a UFC Featherweight Champion who withdraws from the UFC 222 main event where he was scheduled to defend his title against Frankie Edgar, which takes place March 3 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Max Holloway made the first statement via social media, since being removed from the UFC 222 main event.

I asked the docs if we could cut off my leg then ask the commission if I could fight handicapped. They told me at the end of the day it is what it is… Had dozens of family from Hawaii coming up for this one… I know it sucks but hang in there. We’re going to reschedule asap.

I know it sucks but don’t give up on the sport. Card changes have always been part of it. Changes are opportunities for other fighters to get their shot. Surprises are what make this sport unique. Hang on and I’ll find you at the next one.

Max Holloway’s UFC 222 withdrawal marked the second time his fight with Frankie Edgar has been failed to come to fruition. They were first scheduled for UFC 218 back in December, but former UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar pulled out with an injury.

Max Holloway said he hopes to get back in the UFC octagon and fight Frankie Edgar as quickly as he can, but for now, he’s munching.

Before Max Holloway issue a statement, Conor McGregor took to social media with the following jab at the Hawaiian champion.
