One fighter thinks the hyped fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson won’t happen.
The UFC lightweight champ won’t be able to make the fight against Ferguson at UFC 249 due to him being stuck in Russia. Nurmagomedov is currently on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Thus, Justin Gaethje will fight Ferguson for the interim title at UFC 249 next month.
“I think this Khabib fight with Tony Ferguson will never happen,” Charles Oliveira told MMA Fighting. “Something always happens, someone gets hurt. This time was the coronavirus.”
