As this is being written, no official announcement has come out from the UFC, but it looks Tony Ferguson thinks he’s fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov on March 4th.
As you likely know, in recent weeks there’s been a ton of talk about Ferguson and Nurmagomedov fighting next. Especially since it’s been reported that Conor McGregor is taking a bit of a break. Although both men have said they want the fight, Ferguson has been negotiating for more money.
Well, earlier today “El Cucuy” tweeted out the comments below. Is the bout nearly signed and or official? We should probably hear soon.
