UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway says his health has improved following an injury scare earlier in July.

Holloway was pulled from his UFC 226 bout against Brian Ortega due to concussion-like symptoms, which appeared before he started his weight cut. He was rushed to the emergency room and released after one night.

The champion still hasn't been given a proper diagnosis, but believes his health issues are behind him.

"I've seen multiple doctors and experts but they haven't been able to give any answers about what happened," Holloway told ESPN's Ariel Helwani. "But I'm OK. I'm going to fight again. That's all we know."

Ortega opted to withdraw from the UFC 226 card as well and wait for his opponent's health to improve before rescheduling. An official date is yet to be set for their title fight.

UFC president Dana White recently said there was "no way" Holloway would fight anytime soon, but the Hawaii native is targeting a return to the Octagon before the end of the year.

"All of the tests were great," Holloway said. "When you hear those kind of things, but also scary. You want to know what's wrong. It's crazy we just don't have the answers. I'm just glad I'm healthy and OK."

Holloway hasn't fought since beating Jose Aldo via third-round TKO at UFC 218 in December 2017.
