While it might not have been the main event fight fans originally signed up for, UFC 223 is still set to deliver on one of the biggest stages in all of sports. UFC heads back to New York on Saturday night with a pair of titles on the line — including featherweight champion Max Holloway stepping up in weight on six days’ notice to challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov for the 155-pound belt.
Nurmagomedov was originally scheduled to take on interim lightweight champ Tony Ferguson, but a freak knee injury forced the quick change, though UFC president Dana White was able to save the main event in a quick turnaround.
