Tony Ferguson Says Fight With Khabib Nurmagomedov Set For UFC 209
It appears as if Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will finally face off at UFC 209. Ferguson took to Twitter on Tuesday and announced that he’s been tested by the USADA and that he’ll be facing Nurmagomedov at the March 4th event. You can see the post below.
Ferguson has said that he was willing to take the fight, with Dana White revealing that he wanted pay equity with Nurmagomedov and that he was making Ferguson honor his recently-signed contract. Nurmagomedov then offered to pay the extra $200,000 grant to get Ferguson to sign on for the fight.
MMAjunkie reports that bout agreements have not been signed for the fight.
