Friday’s UFC 223 weigh-ins were arguably the most chaotic in UFC history, and the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) is finally providing some answers. The second planned main event between Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) fell apart during the weigh-in window when Holloway was deemed medically unfit to compete . From there, a scramble ensued to find a replacement for tonight’s card, which takes place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. Several fighters were reportedly discussed as replacement options. Al Iaquinta (13-3-1 MMA, 8-2 UFC), Anthony Pettis (20-7 MMA, 7-6 UFC) and Paul Felder (15-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) were among them, and ultimately Iaquinta got the fight
