Tony Ferguson's Withdraws From UFC 223, Not An April Fool's Joke

Shannon Reynolds | 04 April, 2018, 11:38

The Ultimate Fighter season 13 victor was forced off the card due to a knee injury, which was the result of a trip at Fox Studios.

MMA fans were in disbelief and thought it was another April Fool's prank being played as Ferguson and Nurmagomedov have been scheduled to fight three times so far (2015, 2016, 2017) and all three fights were cancelled.

Taking to Twitter on Monday evening, he posted a typically crude reaction: 'These fools pull out more times than I do with my d***'.

In that time the Irishman has had to hand over the featherweight title he beat Jose Aldo for and, whilst never officially stripped of it, he's seen the UFC set up another fight for his lightweight belt that didn't include him. White has confirmed that the fight between Holloway and Khabib Nurmagomedov will be for the official UFC lightweight championship.

"And Conor is not the guy I want to throw in as a late replacement fighter".

Akshay Kumar sponsors toilet after wife tweets picture of open defecation
Many were pondering the reason's over Akshay's silence but were unaware of the actor's plan to solve the defecation problem. Khanna's post had come a month after the city was declared open defecation free by the Quality Council of India.

That fight was supposed to be between American Ferguson and Russian Khabib but not for the first time the fight between the pair won't take place.

According to UFC president White, "The Notorious", who has taken several multiple short-notice fights in the past, wasn't in contention to save the card as he didn't think he'd be able to make championship weight in less than six days.

A September return against the victor could be the next time we see McGregor, and that would be quite the spectacle.

McGregor and Diaz can continue to make fun of the lightweight division's top online all they want, but at some point, they're going to have to get back in the octagon after long bouts of not fighting and back up that talk at some point.

"I haven't spoken with the UFC yet about what's next", Ferguson said.
