Injury knocks Holloway from UFC 222

Injury knocks Holloway from UFC 222

Max Holloway has never been forced to pull out of a fight before so it's understandable why he was so upset to finally make that call to drop out of his upcoming main event bout against Frankie Edgar at UFC 222.

Earlier today awful news shook the mixed martial arts world as ESPN's Brett Okamoto announced that current UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway had suffered an injury and would no longer be able to compete at March's UFC 222 pay-per-view event. According to Okamoto, the UFC is now exploring other options for the show's headline slot.

So, it will be interesting to see what the UFC does here, and if Edgar remains on the card.

It's the second time a meeting between the two in the octagon has been called off - Edgar bowed out of UFC 218 with a facial injury.

Research Report For Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM)
Zacks Investment Research downgraded Exxon Mobil from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Sunday, January 21st. Amalgamated Bancorp holds 454,622 shares or 1.16% of its portfolio. 49,399 are owned by Pineno Levin And Ford Asset Mgmt.

This is a huge blow to the UFC 222 card, which is seriously lacking in star power.

As a result, Holloway instead fought Jose Aldo in a rematch. "They told me at the end of the day, it is what it is". Early on Sunday ESPN reported that the bout fell off due to injury suffered by the champion, who was forced to withdraw from the contest.

"I know it sucks but don't give up on the sport", Holloway wrote "Card changes have always been part of it. Changes are opportunities for other fighters to get their shot. We're going to reschedule asap".
