The Russian is unbeaten in his MMA career and it will be a tough fight for Ferguson on 18 April.

However, the 35-year-old is confident going into the clash and recently posted a video where people were mostly talking about Khabib taking on Conor McGregor.

Brendan Schaub claimed that Ferguson would not be an easy clash for Nurmagomedov, and the mind games seem to be continuing from the American.

Several of his fans also commented the same and claimed that Ferguson is ready for his next fight and has grown too.

The 35-year-old is on a 12-fight win streak, the longest in the Lightweight division and last lost a UFC fight in 2012.

Khabib hasn’t been taking things lightly too and the Lightweight champion has posted several videos of him training earnestly for the April fight.

Nurmagomedov is one of the best fighters in UFC and it will be interesting to see how he does against the hard-hitting Ferguson.

The American might be 35 but he still has a lot of juice left in the tank and shouldn’t be ruled out of the fight completely.

Nurmagomedov defeated Dustin Poirier in his last fight while Ferguson got the better of Donald Cerrone at UFC 238.
