Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson: When Will it Happen?
No one knows! Four times in the past this fight was scheduled and on all four occasions, it did not happen. Fans are sitting at the edge of their seats, their fingers crossed, hoping that this time nothing goes wrong and Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson does happen!
This time, however, if Tony gets injured for some reason, fans will be in for another delight – there’s a chance that Georges St-Pierre, popularly known as GSP, considered by many as the best UFC Lightweight fighter EVER, would face Khabib instead! This is a win-win deal for the fans.
