Frankie Edgar, the Toms River, New Jersey native, may actually have to wait longer for his next fight. According to ESPN, Max Holloway, the UFC featherweight champion, is expected to be removed from the UFC 222 card.
He suffered an injury preparing for the fight. The UFC has been dealing with this problem for quite a long-time.
Holloway and Edgar were supposed to fight this evening at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. As of this post, the UFC has not pulled Holloway from the card, despite Brett Okamoto‘s reporting for the World Wide Leader in Sports.
Holloway and Edgar were supposed to be the card’s main event. This would be the second-time the fight was booked, then was called out due to an injury.
Holloway and Edgar were scheduled to fight each other on Dec. 2 at UFC 218. Then, Edgar suffered an injury preparing for the fight.
Holloway, the 26-year-old Hawai’ian native, is 19-3 in his MMA career. He has won 12 straight fights and has not lost since losing a unanimous decision to Conor McGregor at UFC Fight Night 26 on August 17th, 2013.
Edgar, 36, is 22-5 in his MMA career. He has won his past two MMA fights after suffering a setback to Jose Aldo on July 9th, 2016 at UFC 200 by a unanimous decision.
