A few weeks back, we got a piece of news as ufc featherweight champion Max Holloway will move up to lightweight and challenge number one contender Tony Ferguson for the interim championship match but it seems like Tony Ferguson doesn’t have interest in this fight.

According to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Max Holloway will be moving up in weight at UFC 236 to take on Dustin Poirier for the UFC’s interim lightweight belt and Israel Adesanya vs Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight title.

Finally, Tony Ferguson and Dana White both speaks out regarding the situation.

According to UFC President Dana White, the former interim champion is dealing with ‘a lot of personal issues right now.’

Dana White: “Tony is dealing with a lot of personal issues right now and can’t fight. Hopefully, things turn around for him and he can get back in there.”
