UFC 226: Holloway has been forced out!

The UFC returns to T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas Valley, Nevada on Saturday, July 7 with a championship doubleheader at UFC 226: Miocic vs. Cormier. The event is headlined by a superfight between Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and the Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier, Who coached opposite of each other on season 27 of The Ultimate Fighter.

The co-main event, Holloway has been forced out of his fight where he was expected to face top contender Brian Ortega on Saturday night. Holloway’s manager confirmed the news on Wednesday following an initial statement issued .

“Max’s team and UFC staff noticed Max was not normal since last week. This became obvious to many watching his interviews and public appearances the past few days. He was showing concussion like symptoms before he even started his weight cut and was rushed to the ER on Monday night where they admitted him overnight. Initial scans seemed okay and he was released Tuesday afternoon but symptoms still continued.

Max fought with his team to continue the fight. He showed some improvement over the next day but was still showing obvious symptoms. After open workouts, he crashed and was very hard to wake up, when he did he has flashing vision and slurred speech. He is now back in the ER for further tests.”

Obviously, Holloway’s health is what’s most important, especially with him visiting the emergency room for the second time this week. For now, Holloway will continue to receive treatment while UFC 226 will move forward with the main event in tact as heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic faces Daniel Cormier on Saturday night.
