Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants Georges St-Pierre After Max Holloway

Holloway replaces injured Ferguson at UFC 223

It emerged on Sunday night that the much-anticipated UFC fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson had been canceled for the fourth time, this time due to an injury to Ferguson. Ferguson tripped over a production cable on a FOX set and tore the lateral collateral ligament in his knee.

If Blessed picks up the win, not only does he become the first man to defeat the feared Dagestani, but he'll join Conor McGregor as the only fighter to hold two championships in two different weight classes at the same time. In similar situations in the past, the fight promotion didn't strip the interim champion of the title unless he was sidelined for a considerable amount of time.

"He's a stud", Dana White told ESPN, when asked about Holloway. But with just six days notice to get ready, a cut down to 155 pounds is still going to be severe for the Hawaiian champ. "Conor isn't exactly the guy that I want to throw in as a late replacement fighter".

Trump rolls back Obama-era fuel efficiency rules
The EPA never implemented the Clean Power Plan, the signature Obama-era rule to reduce emissions from the utility sector. California previously intervened in a lawsuit filed by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers that challenged the U.S.

"Hell no. I'm never making that fight ever again. I think that Conor could return in September and it could be against one of these guys". He's still recovering from a leg injury, which forced him to pull out of his fight with Frankie Edgar back in February. The Rose Namajunas-Joanna Jedrzejczyk co-main event for the UFC Women's Strawweight title, in particular, has "Fight of the Year" potential.

"Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take advantage of that opportunity, but to be honest with you, my real feelings on it is that Khabib is not the fighter that you take on six days' notice". But they called me and said Max Holloway.

UFC president Dana White has confirmed that Ferguson sustained a knee injury and needs surgery. But it's fair to wonder whether McGregor will fight the victor of Saturday's showdown.

Tyronn Lue Rejoining The Cleveland Cavaliers
Lue has been on medical leave the past six games after he had stepped away during a game against the Chicago Bulls. If I do make half of those shots that I missed, we probably wouldn't even be in that situation.

Most recently, the French Canadian won the middleweight title at UFC 217 in November with a third-round submission win over then-champion Michael Bisping. Even if you don't believe in the supernatural, it's hard to not think of Khabib vs Ferguson as a cursed matchup.

Holloway, who last fought in December is the reigning UFC featherweight champion and will enter the fight on Saturday riding a 12 fight winning streak.

Klopp: Mohamed Salah is a proper striker
Liverpool's next game will be against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League quater-finals at Anfield on Wednesday. Some players just have bad luck with injuries and Adam Lallana definitely falls into that category.
