Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will compete against each other on March, 4th in Las Vegas, Nevada at UFC 209. This card does not feature any of the Diaz brothers, but Ferguson vows to “Stockton Slap” Nurmagomedov during their fight. It will be interesting to see if Ferguson actually remembers to do that or if he even gets the chance to.
Ferguson has been scheduled to face Nurmagomedov before, but an injury made it so they could not fight each other. Now, if all goes well until March, 4th, this bout is going to happen and it will be for the interim lightweight belt. Nurmagomedov is 24-0 and Ferguson is on a 9-fight winning streak. This bout will definitely determine who faces Conor McGregor next and both Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have done more than anyone in the division’s history to finally earn a title shot.
