Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov decided to turn to Tony Ferguson, who still cannot calm down, constantly bullying the Dagestani on social networks.
Khabib Nurmagomedov shot Tony Ferguson. Ever since they first got the right to fight each other, Ferguson is a scoundrel about Nurmagomedov. Then, after the lightweight champion retired from the sport in October, El Cucuy criticized him for not fighting him and claimed that Nurmagomedov left 29-1. However, Nurmagomedov does not seem to think this is true, as he blamed Ferguson for focusing on him rather than Beneil Dariush.
You have a fight soon, your opponent is very tough and most underestimated in lightweight division, focus on him. I wish you and your family best, even though you look like a shit.— khabib nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) March 31, 2021
“You have a fight soon, your opponent is very tough and most underestimated in lightweight division, focus on him. I wish you and your family best, even though you look like a shit,” Nurmagomedov tweeted.
According to Nurmagomedov, Ferguson faces a very tough fight at UFC 262 as he prepares to face Benil Dariush. This is a cross-fight for El Cucuy, who is losing in two fights and in both fights he was dominated by his opponent.
Khabib Nurmagomedov introduced Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 to defend his lightweight title. Prior to that, he also introduced Poirier and McGregor to protect his light belt. After defeating Gaethje, Eagle retired from the sport, and just recently White admitted leaving.
Tony Ferguson, meanwhile, is losing two fights after being dominated by Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje in a row. Before the defeat, El Cucuy had a streak of 12 victories, including victories over Anthony Pettis, Kevin Lee, Donald Cerrone and Rafael dos Anjos.
The fact that Khabib Nurmagomedov is hitting Tony Ferguson on social networks proves that the rivalry between them is not over. Although the Russian is retired and Ferguson is losing, it is likely that they will never fight each other. This is disappointing for MMA fans. It was a fight that escaped, but the two will no doubt continue to shoot each other.
