A silver lining to Tony Ferguson’s UFC 223 withdrawal? It makes us appreciate how awesome Max Holloway is

Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov is done. It’s finished, over, banned from our consciousness. Not just for now, but for all time.

Don’t talk to me about it. Don’t mention the possibility of rebooking it. Don’t even say their names together in the same sentence. After four attempts and four failures, the only thing to do is to let it go and move on. There’s some sort of supernatural forcefield preventing these two from fighting. The harder they struggle to enter the same cage together, the more bizarre and devastating the reasons for withdrawal eventually become.

How else do you explain Ferguson’s knee injury knocking him out of the UFC 223 main event? According to “El Cucuy,” it happened not in the gym but on a studio set. ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported that Ferguson “veered sharply to say hello” to someone, then tripped and tore a ligament in his knee.

Of all the ways for this fight to fall apart again, who would have guessed that TKO due to friendliness would wind up as the final culprit? What other sign do we need that this one just wasn’t meant to be?
