Holloway was told he was unfit to make weight with an hour left. They told Anthony Pettis who was supposed to fight Michael Chiesa before Chiesa got hurt by Conor that he had an hour to make title weight and the main event was his. He missed weight by .2 lbs and has two hours now thanks to NYSAC rules to cut the 2 tenths of a lb.
Conor McGregor and his hoodlums went on a rampage and stormed the Barclays center. Once in they started smashing stuff and throwing stuff around. He went after Khabib's bus and threw a dolly through the window of the bus breaking the glass which caught Michael Chiesa and gave him a few lacerations which cost us Chiesa vs Pettis. The glass also got Ray Borg in the eye and cost us Borg vs. Moreno at UFC 223 on saturday as well. Conor has been arrested and is in jail. He will be in court this morning as he is being charged with 3 counts of assult and 1 count of criminal mischief. I personally hope he is released from the UFC for being nothing more than a terrorist, thug, and bully.
Khabib and Tferg were supposed to square off Saturday for the lightweight belt but Tferg tore his LCL in a freak accident. Ortega and Holloway were both offered the fight against Khabib and they both accepted. Holloway was the UFC's choice and is set to replace Tferg for a lightweight opportunity.
