Holloway fills in for an injured Ogle against McGregor

UFC officials today announced that Max Holloway (7-2) has stepped in for an injured Andy Ogle (9-2) and will face Conor McGregor (13-2) in a featherweight showdown at UFC on Fox Sports 11.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 takes place Aug. 17 at TD Garden in Boston and will be the UFC’s debut on the new FOX Sports 1 cable network.

Holloway is coming off a split-decision loss to Dennis Bermudez at May’s UFC 160 event. That fight snapped a three-fight win streak.

McGregor is riding a nine-fight win streak with nine stoppages, including seven in the first round.
