D.C. Calls Out Tony Ferguson For Turning Down Fight Against Khabib

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is looking to lock down an opponent for UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. Reigning lightweight champion Conor McGregor has revealed that he has his sights set on Tony Ferguson for his big octagon return. However, the fighters have yet to reach an agreement.

Another fight that the UFC has been attempting to sink in is a match up between tough lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagodmedov and Tony Ferguson. Going to twitter, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier revealed that Nurmagomedov was allegedly offered a fight against “El Cucuy” for UFC 219. However, Ferguson has since turned down the offer.

Cormier had some critical words over Ferguson’s alleged decision to turn down the fight over Twitter. The champion stated:

“So I walk into the gym today and @khabib_nurmagomedov walks up and says the @Ufc is wanting to make me vs @tonyfergusonxt for dec 30. Then he tells me that tony is saying no to the fight. Come on Tony, that ain’t gangsta bruh. Take the fight man!!!!”

UFC 219 goes down Dec. 30 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. The event will be featured live on pay-per-view.
