“Never-2- late for Tiramisu” – Tony Ferguson fires shots at Khabib

Tony Ferguson hasn’t relinquished the idea of a dream match-up against Khabib Nurmagomedov, now that the former lightweight champion has officially retired.

The pair were booked to face each other five times, most recently at UFC 249, however, Khabib had to pull out due to the ongoing pandemic. The fight has therefore been ill-famed as the most cursed fight ever, and fans lost out on one of the most anticipated clashes in UFC history.

Justin Gaethje, who stepped in as a replacement for Khabib, demolished Ferguson, and went on to face Khabib for the undisputed title. Khabib dominated Gaethje at UFC 254, finishing him inside two rounds, and retaining the UFC lightweight championship. He retired after that fight to the surprise of everyone.

Tony has since then been on a losing skid, but never fails to poke fun at how Khabib famously pulled out of their UFC 209 bout, failing to make weight. Recently he posted a video of them for the face-off and made fun of Khabib’s conditioning.

Here is what ‘El Cucuy’ had to say:

Tony Ferguson vs Michael Chandler reportedly in the works for UFC 274

An epic lightweight showdown between Tony Ferguson and Michael Chandler is reportedly targeted for UFC 274 as per a recent report by Ariel Helwani.

Tony Ferguson and Michael Chandler have been chirping at each other for quite some time now. The unlikely rivalry that originated at the UFC 262 press conference will likely be concluded inside the UFC octagon better soon than later.

Tony Ferguson was a bit flustered at the UFC 262 press conference watching Michael Chandler get a shot at the UFC gold after only one win inside the UFC octagon. He famously quoted Michael Chandler of having ‘Dana privilege’ summarizing his cakewalk path to the title picture.

During a recent Spotify Greenroom appearance, Helwani reported that the fight might be very close to fruition.
