Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway are ready to throw down at UFC 223 on Saturday, but it seems clear, so far, that there’s no issues between the two.

It’s been a couple days now since the MMA world was turned upside down, with the news that Holloway, and not Tony Ferguson, will fight Nurmagomedov on Saturday. Well, Holloway didn’t waste anytime heading to the card’s host city of Brooklyn, New York, and in the latest Embedded, cameras are on hand when he runs into “The Eagle” in the gym.

You can check out the respectful exchange below. If you missed it, Episode 1 can be viewed here.

Ferguson has been forced out of the lightweight title fight due to a knee injury.
