One of the oldest rivalries in UFC has started again as Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov got into a Twitter dispute. It all started when Ferguson called out Nurmagomedov to coach against him at The Ultimate Fighter. Nurmagomedov reacted to Ferguson and gave a positive proposal in the matter.
But later Ferguson, shut down the offer and disrespected Nurmagomedov on Twitter. Fans were expecting to see Nurmagomedov go against Ferguson in a coaching showdown as their rivalry goes way back in the history of UFC lightweight division. But Ferguson’s negative reaction was something that many didn’t appreciate.
Nurmagomedov’s former manager and friend, Ali Abdelaziz also had similar feelings towards Ferguson as he called out the fighter for his disrespectful comments. Abdelaziz jumped into the twitter battle against Ferguson and wished him best of luck and also roasted him. Abdelaziz wrote :
“I’m happy for you my man, I wish you nothing but the best, but honestly like I said, there is nothing you can do better than the Greatest of All Time.”
Tony Ferguson replies to Ali Abdelaziz’s Tweet
After the tweet was made by Abdelaziz, Ferguson was quick to reply to it. ‘El Cucuy’ took this opportunity to throw shade at Nurmagomedov and his team.
Ferguson explained that the Dagestani is only the greatest in ducking the real fight, which is Ferguson himself. The fighter claimed that he is the ‘best of all time’ and also accepted the TUF offer. In the end, Ferguson suggested that he is sure that Nurmagomedov will not show up.
” Greatest At Avoiding A Real😎Fight 💯 Check It Out I’m The B.O.A.T. That’s The Best Of All Time 🚣♂️💨🍃 We Accept The TUF Offer Coaching Against Fathead, I’m Sure He Won’t Show Up Like UFC🎫249 Watch- Champ 🥇 -CSO- 🇺🇸🏆🇲🇽 # ♟ Check,”
Ferguson and Nurmagomedov are some of the biggest names in UFC history despite their current status. The fight between both these fighters have been made many times but never took place due to many problems. Fight fans still debate about who will be the winner of the fight if it ever takes place. If the TUF proposal gets materialised and everything falls in place, it would be a massive event for the fight fans.
