Andy Ogle has been forced off the UFC’s return to Boston for undisclosed reasons. In his place against Conor McGregor will be featherweight Max Holloway. The UFC announced the change on Twitter.
No reason was given for Ogle’s removal, however multiple foreign fighters have fallen victim to Social Security number issue that was first revealed earlier this year.
