Report: Frankie Edgar out of Max Holloway title fight at UFC 218

Frankie Edgar will not compete at UFC 218 against UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway.

Edgar was set to meet the new champion Holloway in the main event of the December 2 card, where he could have potentially become the fifth person in history to hold two UFC titles in two divisions. Unfortunately, after suffering an injury in training, the former lightweight champion has been forced to withdraw from the contest after being ruled unable to fight.

There had to be a sacrificial lamb for 217.

Still sucks though, would of for sure been a great fight. UFC 217 was too good to be true, others must suffer.
How taste my peepee.

AV bet with JackHawk: Holloway > Edgar 1 month

Swanson will probably end up as the replacement. That fight would be wild. Cant see him beating Holloway at this point though.

Coolest thing would be for McGregor to legitimize a title. Of course, Ferguson should be it, but, hey, this would be just as sweet. Wouldn't that be some shit if he could do 145 again? Not that I think it's realistic, but stranger things have happened.

But seriously, it has to be Swanson. If not, that leaves Lamas. No real huge fan base there for a money fight. Aldo would just be silly. He just got KTFO, and has lost relevancy in the bigger picture for the division.

That fight was so one sided.  I don't believe anyone really wants to revisit that.  Aldo is washed up.
