Frankie Edgar has a boo-boo and is no longer challenging Max Holloway for the UFC Featherweight Championship at UFC 218.

 

Edgar posted the following on Instgram:

 

 

I feel like he uses this same picture to troll Johny Hendricks.

 

In the aftermath of this devastating news* a number of fighters have volunteered as tribute to be a replacement, however.

 

Jose Aldo said he’d rather fight Holloway than Lamas:

 

(You really don’t deserve a rematch, buddy.)

 

Lamas said he’d rather fight Holloway than Aldo:

 

 

And for some reason, Cub Swanson chimed in:

 

 

Yeah, I don’t get that one much myself, though at least it would be someone new in the title mix.

 

BTW, I fully expect the UFC to have Holloway fight someone for an interim title now.  Yes, I know he’s already champion but just you watch…

 

(Still a good card, though.)
