American fighter Tony Ferguson criticized the Russian Habib Nurmagomedov, the former champion of the “UFC” Federation of Mixed Martial Arts “MMA”, accusing him of evading confronting him several times before the latter’s retirement.
Ferguson posted a video on his Twitter account of his face-to-face meeting with Habib, accompanied by a “Tweet” in which he said: “Listen, you fat bastard. The last time I saw you, you ran to another country like a little bitch to avoid our fight for the title. Before that, I evaded stomach ache – for the same reason to escape the title fight. Shut up and leave the affairs of men to the front lines.”
The American fighter sent this stinging message to the Russian against the backdrop of Habib’s statements that his compatriot Islam Makhachev deserves to compete for the champion belt more than the other American Justin Gaethje, after the latter’s victory over his compatriot Michael Chandler with points in the fight that brought them together in the “UFC 268” mixed martial arts tournament.
Habib was not late in responding to Ferguson, commenting on the American’s criticism after 9 hours, but in a less harsh tone: “In the past three years, I have not won a single round in the UFC, in some rounds I lost by 10-8). Since 2015, I have defeated one. One of the top 15 fighters. Tony, that’s a clear picture, I won’t go into the details, I won’t offend you. These are just facts.”
And Tony Ferguson went crazy, when Habib announced his retirement after defeating the other American Justin Gaethje in October 2020, in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi, as part of the “UFC 254” mixed martial arts tournament.
Habib expressed in a press conference during his preparations for his match against Gaetje, that he believes that he will face Ferguson, if he wins his match, by saying: “I don’t know why, but I think we will fight with Tony. I would like that. And if I beat Gaetje, Ferguson will be on “My next opponents list. When you fight strong opponents, you leave a legacy. I don’t know what will happen to the world, but I hope that next year Tony and I will fight. This name gives me a lot of motivation: how to prepare for it, how to deal with it.”
But Habib, instead of entering the cage with Tony Ferguson, surprised everyone by announcing his retirement.
