Andy Ogle is off of the UFC on Fox Sports 1 fight card on Aug. 17. Popular Irishman Conor McGregor will now face Max Holloway instead.
UFC officials announced the change on Wednesday.
McGregor and Ogle made for a solid Ireland vs. England in the heavily Irish town of Boston, but it wasn’t to be.
McGregor (13-2) made his long-awaited promotional debut at UFC on Fuel TV 9, stopping Marcus Brimage with strikes little over a minute into their bout. The victory showed that the McGregor hype was spot-on, and improved his current winning streak to nine consecutive fights.
Holloway’s professional record currently stands at 7-2. He recently had a three-fight winning streak ground to a halt with a split decision loss to Dennis Bermudez at UFC 160.
McGregor vs. Holloway is expected to take a spot on the preliminary portion of the UFC on Fox Sports 1: Shogun vs. Sonnen fight card on Aug. 17 in Boston.
