After being ruled medically unfit to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov tomorrow at UFC 223, Max Holloway has posted a statement regarding the unfortunate turn of events.

Holloway stepped up on just six days notice to fight Nurmagomedov, after Tony Ferguson was sidelined with a knee injury. But, while trying to make 155 pounds today for tomorrow’s contest, doctors ruled Holloway could not take the bout.

Since then, Holloway tweeted out this comment:

As this is being written, there’s no word on whether a replacement opponent has been found for Nurmagomedov.
