The UFC president took to social media to slam Yamasaki for what many thought was an egregiously late stoppage in the UFC Belem co-main event fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Priscila Cachoeira on Saturday night in Brazil.

Max Holloway Withdraws from Title Defense vs. Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 Due to Injury
UFC 222 needs a new headliner. Reigning featherweight champion Max Holloway has withdrawn from his scheduled title defense against Frankie Edgar at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on March 3 due to an unspecified injury. Multiple outlets have confirmed the news following an initial report from ESPN.com on Saturday. The promotion has not officially pulled Holloway from the card, but it is reportedly exploring other options for a new UFC 222 headliner. Holloway and Edgar were originally booked to fight at UFC 218 in December, but Edgar was forced to pull out of that bout due to injury. Instead, Holloway successfully defended his title with a third-round stoppage of Jose Aldo. Holloway claimed undisputed featherweight gold with a technical knockout of Aldo at UFC 212. The Hawaiian has won 12 fights in a row.
