    The Ultimate Fighting Championship has not provided an official diagnosis on why current featherweight champion Max Holloway was forced to pull out of last Saturday’s co-main event at UFC 226 other than to say the Hawaiian had “concussion-like symptoms.”

    A week from his withdrawal, it seems the symptoms could have been brought on by another brutal weight cut which may have resulted in water poisoning as Holloway was trying to lose weight to hit his 145 pound goal.

    How long is concussion protocol? 3 months? 1 month? Will he be able to fight on the August card at the Staples Center? Because Im going to that fight and that would be awesome!

    I think there is still some confusion on whether it was water poisoning or a concussion.

    just shitting on Dana. Last article I read Ortega was going to get "something".

    Thing is he already did contract work, media obligations for one.
    He needs to be paid for contract work.

    yeah that's what I mean. They should have that in their contracts that they should be compensated when that happens

    yeah. i didn't mean full pay. but I think it'd be fair that if they show up, make weight and do their media, they deserve at least their show money

    If he did ANY work he should get paid something.

    At a minimum, covering all training costs. But, as others have said, if he wants his money then he should sign Project Spearhead or another group.

    I don't know if WME does them, but Zuffa had promotional contracts that some fighters had that covered doing all the appearances, workouts, pressers, etc.
    Ortega's "agent" may want to look into that next time.

    As for vacating.....why vacate? Make another Interim title, then just turn it into the real title at a time of their choosing. Might as well. Not like these belts are legitimate anymore.

    It's premature to ask Max to vacate, but as any fighter knows, potential title shots disappear when the winds change direction. Not to mention, holding the belt is where the cash is.

    As far is Dana being a pissy little bald lobster-complected bitch—that's a given.

    Shouldn't be long before Conor is calling out Holloway but only til he's cleared to fight again.
