Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson: Finally Going to Happen!
Khabib Nurmagomedov is the king of mat-style wrestling. Tony Ferguson is your classic elbows-and-kicks guy who loves to rip open his opponents (if you don’t believe us, Google for ‘Tony Ferguson Last Six Opponents’ and check the images). Nurmagomedov vs Ferguson is the fight that everyone has been waiting for. (There’s also the much-rumored Khabib vs Conor McGregor II but well)
Many wonder that Khabib’s unbroken streak might finally come to an end when he faces Ferguson. However, this is really any man’s game as there is an equal chance that Khabib might wrap himself around El Cucuy and make him tap out!
To be clear nobody is sleeping on Tony Ferguson , he is on 12 fight winning streak for a reason , we will have the best training camp and we will have faith in Allah for both guys to stay healthy. Let’s do this . EAGLE TIME. KHABIB TIME @TeamKhabib
