Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov have been set to fight each other multiple times over the years, but injuries have kept the two from colliding in the Octagon.
Nurmagomedov wants to finally get his hands on Ferguson and he would like to have the fight take place this fall.
“I’m going through rehabilitation. I can’t give you a certain date but it’s going to be this fall. I’ll take this summer to rehabilitate and in the fall, I’ll start my preparation and at the end of the fall, I want to have a fight. We’ll go for the same fight with Ferguson. I have no interest in any other fight. I have to finish my business with Tony Ferguson,” Nurmagomedov said to RT Sport.
In response to Nurmagomedov, the lightweight contender in Ferguson wants Khabib to beg for the fight.
