Ferguson Calls Khabib’s Record “Padded”, Not Sold On Contender’s Undefeated Record

Tony Ferguson is preparing himself for one of the biggest fights of his life in two weeks when he steps into the octagon against Khabib Nurmagomedov. The two will be throwing down in a five-round co-main event at “UFC 209” to decide the fate of the interim lightweight championship.

Even though Nurmagomedov boasts an impressive undefeated record with twenty-four victories, Ferguson is not threatened by that at the least. Ferguson went as far to say Khabib’s record is padded, telling IB Times:

“Absolutely, you have to respect him. He has [a] 24 win streak but it’s a padded record. I’ve seen it all the time. As far as conditioning goes, he’s only got two rounds in him. I’ve been going four rounds, five rounds. Mexico City, we’re supposed to fight elevation. I was ready to go another 10. I was ready to go man.”
