MMA fans around the world have received disappointing news this evening, with just a week to go until UFC 223. The showdown between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov has been the most anticipated fight of 2018, but it looks like it won’t be going ahead, yet again.

Report are emerging tonight that Ferguson has suffered an injury and is ruled out of the bout.

This comes as a major setback to the promotion, who now face an uphill task in finding a replacement for the fight.

There is still a title fight on the card, as Rose Namajunas puts her strawweight strap on the line in a rematch with Joanna Jędrzejczyk.

It’s sure to be an interesting few days ahead as we await a replacement opponent for Khabib, or indeed an alternative fight.

**Update: Max Holloway will step in to fight Khabib.

Khabib also took to social media, wishing Ferguson well.

The Russian also earlier hinted that perhaps Conor McGregor was in the mix to step in.

Khabib vs Holloway. It’s on!
