Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants Tony Ferguson Fight At UFC 219

Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants Tony Ferguson Fight At UFC 219

"When Conor hits you with a clean shot, it doesn't affect people like most people's big shots affect people". Now he wants to fight Conor McGregor and scratch "interim" from his title.

All the components of the fight were ideal enough for us to want to see it even if everyone was aware that the "king of UFC" had very little chance in beating one of the best pound-for-pound boxers ever. The former champion revealed on Friday that Al Haymon has reached out to Dana White to try to start some kind of negotiations for the bout.

However, Nurmagomedov suffered a botched weight cut and had to pull out on the day of the weigh-ins, marking the third time that a fight between himself and "El Cucuy" had to be called off. "I guess we've got to see the fight to find out but it's certainly an interesting match-up and you can make a lot of cases for both guys to win". End of the year, I want to take everything back. If I beat Tony Ferguson and take the interim championship belt.

UFC officials have yet to make the bout official, but the expectation is that McGregor and Ferguson to square off in late-December or the new year. But, you can understand why some believe Ferguson's interim belt in fact means more, since he's defeated several top contenders at 155.

"Trying to come back, training every day - every day, training full-time - this is not easy". "I agree with fans; I have to fight". I agree with this.

However, while McGregor is still a novice, the Irishman does now have some experience of a professional boxing fight and would have more time to improve on what he can do, so he should not be taken lightly if the pair do face off. All the time, when I fight.

Ferguson, the Ultimate Fighter season 13 victor, moved into pole position to be the man to welcome McGregor back to the Octagon earlier this month when he beat number one contender Kevin Lee in the main event of UFC 216. "This is what I want".
