Ferguson is a former interim UFC lightweight champion and was on a 12-fight win streak before losing to Justin Gaethje. He is often considered one of the toughest fighters in the UFC and is a huge fan favorite. Nurmagomedov, on the other hand, retired undefeated. Many consider the Dagestan native as the greatest of all time.

He finished his career with a 29-0 record and as the UFC lightweight champion. However, Khabib vs. Ferguson is a fight everyone in the MMA community wanted to see at least once. The fight, for various reasons, kept getting canceled. But both men have reignited their rivalry on Twitter recently. Nurmagomedov, in a recent Twitter post, responded to a post by Ferguson.

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s prodigy Islam Makhachev recently called the former interim champion out, but nothing happened on that front.
