A highly anticipated lightweight title fight between interim champion Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov has been canceled just six days before it was supposed to headline UFC 223 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Weight cut issues at short notice is part of the reason why McGregor was not invited to fight at the event in Brookly on 7 April.
At UFC 209, when Nurmagomedov did not show up to weigh-ins due to an emergency situation as a result of weight cutting, the UFC didn't have enough time to find a suitable replacement that Ferguson would agree to face.
McGregor (21-3) will be stripped of the current lightweight title he holds and the official champion will be crowned Saturday night.
White said after the event that he was embarrassed and promised to one day make it up to the fans of Calgary. "I think most guys at 155, especially in the top five, can't make that 155-pound limit on six days' notice".

White said the promotion did not reach out to McGregor as a potential replacement for Ferguson. That's why if he beats Holloway, he will be pushing for a fight against former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
"Whoever wins, wins the title and we'll see what happens with Conor over the next several months. They just did that with Robert Whittaker past year", Ferguson said.
Twice, though, Nurmagomedov pulled out because of injuries or illness, and twice it was Ferguson.
