UFC president Dana White has revealed he didn't supply Conor McGregor a UFC 223 light-weight championship struggle towards Khabib Nurmagomedov after his scheduled opponent Tony Ferguson withdrew from the bout with injury.

White introduced Max Holloway can be stepping in for the injured Ferguson on Saturday night time, after Nurmagomedov had already referred to as out McGregor on social media, asking the Irishman: ‘The place are you now?’.
