Frankly, this stinks; an injury takes Frankie Edgar out of UFC 218

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.)
