Ferguson interrupted one of the questions directed at him and took a shot at Khabib. He called Nurmagomedov a “b**ch” and added that he will dedicate the song ‘Mask off’ to him.
“He’s a f***ing b***h. He’s a p***y. Sorry to interrupt you. I’m gonna dedicate this f***ing song called Mask Off. Chase a check, never chase a b***h. That’s Khabib.”
At various points in their respective careers, Ferguson was set to fight Nurmagomedov. However, after being scheduled in a bout against each other on six different occasions, Ferguson vs. Nurmagomedov never happened and eventually Khabib retired from the sport.
At UFC 249, Ferguson was booked to fight against Nurmagomedov and that would go on to be the final time such an event between the two men was booked by the UFC. Following Ferguson’s loss to Justin Gaethje at UFC 249, it was the latter who went on to fight against Nurmagomedov in what was the final fight of his career.
Ferguson will face Beneil Dariush at the upcoming UFC 262 pay-per-view. This will be a chance for ‘El Cucuy’ to revive his image and end his losing streak.
Prior to this, Ferguson lost to Justin Gaethje and suffered another loss to Charles Oliveira in 2020.
Ferguson has revealed that he has made crucial changes in his training regime and is determined to take home a win.
