It wasn't originally in his plans, but Max Holloway will be shipping up to Boston next month.
The Hawaiian fighter will face Irish sensation Conor McGregor in a featherweight bout on the debut UFC on FOX Sports 1 card at the TD Garden on Aug. 17. Holloway will replace Andy Ogle.
UFC UK tweeted the news on Wednesday. In a follow-up, a UFC official confirmed to MMAFighting.com that the U.K.-based Ogle is off the card due to injury, and that it is not a paperwork hold-up related to the UFC's recent issues with the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
McGregor, a 24-year-old Dublin native, made a huge impression in his UFC debut with a swift first-round finish of Marcus Brimage in Sweden. McGregor earned Fight of the Night honors in raising his record to 13-2 with nine straight victories via finish.
The 21-year old Holloway, meanwhile, has been impressive in his UFC stint. The 7-2 Holloway is 3-1 in the UFC, with his only loss in the span a disputed split decision against Dennis Bermudez at UFC 160.
