Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reported that Anthony Pettis would replace Holloway in the main event, but MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani tweeted that Nurmagomedov's participation was "not 100%" Pettis would still need to make weight on Friday morning.

Holloway, who stepped in on short notice following the injury to Tony Ferguson, has been ruled out to fight but despite the news, he has insisted that he "wants to keep going" but 'they are stopping me'.

The victor of Nurmagomedov vs Holloway was to be crowned the true 155-pound lightweight champion, after Dana White stripped Conor McGregor of that title. Although the UFC featherweight champ was moving up to lightweight for the contest, he was not in training camp, and his nutritionist said his weight cut would be "tied for the biggest" he's ever helped with. Sorry to your team and the fans.

UFC 223 will take place Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The main card will air on pay-per-view following prelims on UFC Fight Pass. Shout outs to you and @Showtimepettis.

At Thursday's UFC 223 media day, Holloway would not take questions about exactly what he weighed. Nurmagomedov made weight at 154.5 pounds.

The former UFC lightweight champion, Pettis was originally expected to fight Michael Chiesa on the main card. He weighed in at 155.2 pounds and has to get under 155 by 1 p.m. ET in order for the fight to happen. Iaquinta has also won his last five fights in a row and he's now ranked in the top 15 in the lightweight division.
