UFC 223 Khabib vs Holloway
The Hawaiian proved his heart yet again when he volunteered to step up on six days notice to take on Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight title in the main event of UFC 223. It was a valiant and card-saving gesture by Holloway, but it could be one he looks back on with regret. Tony Ferguson suffered a knee injury that forced him out of the fight. This was the fourth time he’d been scheduled to fight Nurmagomedov only to have the bout canceled because of injury or medical condition. Holloway has established himself as one of the promotion’s top champions and at 26 years old, he appears to be in the prime of his career after back-to-back stoppage wins over Jose Aldo. However, Holloway is moving up in weight on less than a week notice to face one of the strongest and physically dominant fighters in the sport.

With a victory, Hawaii’s Holloway will become the youngest fighter to hold two UFC titles, only the second to hold two belts simultaneously and just the fifth to achieve the feat. Fresh from a pair of stoppage wins over Brazilian superstar Jose Aldo that established Holloway as the best featherweight in the sport, “Blessed” is now chasing bigger game in the 155-pound division, where the 25-0 Nurmagomedov – who is coming off back to back wins over Michael Johnson and Edson Barboza – is eagerly waiting for him and his own shot at championship gold.
