(Video) Tony Ferguson provides massive scare to fans ahead of Khabib clash

Tony Ferguson faces Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 249 and had a scary fall during training

Tony Ferguson seems to be taking training seriously ahead of his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 249.

The 36-year-old is 25-3 in his 28 bouts and will provide a stiff test to the Lightweight champion. Nurmagomedov is unbeaten in his MMA career, and this could be Ferguson’s biggest fight in several years.

Both UFC stars have started training for the fight in April, taking things up a notch, and some of the methods are questionable, to say the least.

Staying fit for the fight has to be the priority for both fighters but one video from Ferguson got some fans worried.

The American decided to try running up a set of tyres, and it didn’t go well the first time.

Ferguson could be seen tumbling down and falling on his shoulder in the first run, though he got back up and completed the training drill later on.

This could have led to a serious injury for the 36-year-old and he could have missed the fight.

Fortunately, Ferguson seems to be alright, and posted another video of him taking down a punching bag in impressive fashion.

Fans given a major scare by Ferguson

The 36-year-old could be the first fighter to hand Khabib a loss, and it would be an impressive feat.

However, many fans joked that the 36-year-old would miss the fight if he continued training like this.

Dana White has confirmed that Conor McGregor would face the winner of this bout, and that would be a blockbuster event too.

The Irishman returned to the UFC with an incredible 40-second win over Donald Cerrone, and he seems to be back to his best.
