Dana White Will Never Book Ferguson vs Khabib Again

At that same press conference, UFC President Dana White was asked if there was an insurance policy in place in case either Khabib Nurmagomedov or Tony Ferguson had to pull out of their main event fight at UFC 223. Nurmagomedov said. "I need eight weeks, train hard, last one week make weight and go to the war". But I still want this fight. "I got a lot of things to do still at 145 but I told you guys, when the UFC says then it's time to step up".

The undefeated Dagestani fighter will face Max Holloway at UFC 223 Saturday in Brooklyn after his original opponent, Tony Ferguson, fell off the card with a freak injury.

After a fight week switch to the main event, the UFC has released an updated version of the UFC 223 poster ahead of Saturday. "I think most guys at 155, especially in the top five, can't make that 155-pound limit on six days' notice".

And not only are these two fighters missing out, but so are UFC fans.

The UFC has tried to pair Ferguson and Nurmagomedov on four occasions, all of which have fallen through for various reasons.

However, it could have all been a different situation had Holloway not accepted the fight in time.

As it stands right now, Conor McGregor is the UFC lightweight champ, while Ferguson holds the interim belt he won last October, by submitting Kevin Lee. He said he's staying ready but he's no where to be found.

'He's a stud. The guy hasn't lost a fight since 2013, and that was a decision to Conor McGregor, ' White added. When Nuragomedov failed to make the scales for UFC 209, the fight was scrapped entirely.

Holloway will have a chance to pick up his second belt this Saturday when he faces Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Ferguson is out of the equation and loses his interim lightweight belt, a crushing blow for a man riding a 10-fight win streak.

Despite McGregor's recently expressed interest in returning to the octagon, White told ESPN that McGregor was never contacted as a possible replacement for Ferguson primarily due to the short notice.
