Max Holloway makes a statement regarding his UFC 222 withdrawal

UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway has given a statement with regards to his withdrawal from UFC 222 in which he was scheduled to face Frankie Edgar.

Making the statement via his twitter, Max Holloway explains his disappointment at not being able to compete saying “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…”

Holloway suffered a leg injury forcing him out of his title bout against Frankie Edgar this March. This marks the second time this fight has been unable to go ahead with the first time the two were scheduled to fight, Edgar pulled out due to injury. The champ says it will be rescheduled asap but for now the UFC will seek a new main event.
