Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Andy Ogle has been injured and forced to withdraw from his upcoming fight against Conor McGregor at the UFC on FOX Sports 1 #1 event, scheduled for Aug. 17, 2013 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.
Promotion officials announced the change earlier today.
Stepping in to take his place is Max Holloway, who saw his three-fight winning streak come to an end as a result of a close split decision loss to Dennis Bermudez at the UFC 160 pay-per-view (PPV) back in May. The "Blessed" Hawaiian is 7-2 overall with two wins coming by way of knockout/technical knockout.
He's got his hands full.in "Beantown."
McGregor (13-2) made his Octagon debut earlier this year with a sensational first-round knockout over Marcus Brimage at UFC on FUEL TV 9. The "Notorious" finish earned him a $60,000 bonus for "Knockout of the Night" and effectively put the rest of the 145-pound division on notice.
