Max Holloway has had to deal with a whirlwind of potential fights in the past few months. He was first scheduled to fight Frankie Edgar in March before suffering an injury in Feb.

He attempted to fill-in for Tony Ferguson to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov after Ferguson had to pull out on Easter after an injury. The New York Athletic Commission ruled that he was unfit to fight.
