With that being said, Edgar was supposed to get a title shot at UFC 222 against featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) but a Holloway suffered an injury that took him out of the fight. Ortega’s big win has paid off because he got a call from UFC President Dana White who told him he had the next title shot against Holloway.
