Max Holloway out of UFC 272 —reports │ GMA News Online

    Former UFC featherweight world champion Max Holloway was forced out of his trilogy bout against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 272, according to a report by ESPN.

    Holloway, who holds a mixed martial arts record of 23-6, is coming off two straight wins following his back-to-back losses against the reigning champion Volkanovski.

    “After aggravating a prior injury, Max Holloway was forced to withdraw from the trilogy fight with Volkanovski slated at UFC 272, sources confirmed to Brett Okamoto,” ESPN reported on Instagram.

    The 30-year-old Holloway, considered by many as one of the greatest featherweights of all time, lost his then title to Volkanovski by unanimous decision at UFC 245 in December 2019.

    A rematch took place seven months later in the co-main event of UFC 251 where Volkanovski escaped with a highly disputed split decision nod.

    The UFC is yet to make an official announcement surrounding Holloway’s injury.
