UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway has been pulled from his weekend title fight after suffering an injury. Now UFC President Dana White has come forward with an update on the fighter’s well being.
Max Holloway was initially locked in to face undefeated contender Brian Ortega in the live pay-per-view co-main event for UFC 226 on July 7 from within the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. However, Holloway has since been pulled out of the fight.
The reigning title holder was reportedly showing concussion-like symptoms, leading to the fight cancellation. Speaking to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, UFC President Dana White revealed that it is yet unclear what is medically wrong with Max Holloway.
“They don’t know. Obviously he’s… according to him, he feels good. But, we’ve got to get to the bottom of it. We don’t know. They figure that it might be a concussion. They figure that it might be from weight cutting. Nobody knows right now.”
