UFC 272: Holloway injured, Henry Cejudo offers to step in on short notice

An injury to former champion Max Holloway has thrown UFC 272 into uncertainty, but former champion Henry Cejudo is offering to save the day.

According to ESPN, Holloway aggravated a previous injury and is out. The UFC has not yet confirmed Holloway’s injury or possible replacement, but that isn’t stopping Cejudo from offering his services.

Volkanovski (23-1-0), 33, is coming off an impressive victory over Brian Ortega at UFC 266 last September. Holloway will be his third title defence. He is No. 2 on the UFC’s P4P list.

Cejudo (16-2-0), 34, previously became one of only four UFC champ-champs when he won the flyweight and bantamweight belts back in 2019. He is also the only fighter to win an Olympic gold medal and a UFC title.

We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out.

UFC 272 is scheduled for Mar. 5 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Other scheduled bouts include:

(C) ALEXANDER VOLKANOVSKI (23-1-0) VS. ?

(C) ALJAMAIN STERLING (20-3-0) VS. PETR YAN (16-2-0)

#3 MARINA RODRIGUEZ (15-1-2) VS. #4 YAN XIAONAN (13-2-0, 1NC)

JALIN TURNER (11-5-0) VS. JAMIE MULLARKEY (14-4-0)

EDSON BARBOZA (22-10-0) VS. BRYCE MITCHELL (14-0-0)
