With Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson still a few weeks away, UFC has given their action-starved fans the next best thing; a virtual simulation match between the two superstars.
Khabib vs Tony seems to be a ‘cursed’ fight, with match-ups canceled or postponed four times before. However, the fifth time may just be the charm.
The main attraction of the fight between the two fighters are the skill sets they possess. Khabib’s Sambo and ground game are second to none, while Tony’s unorthodox methods make him dangerous and unpredictable.
Khabib might just have met his match in Tony Ferguson. Tony can fight standing up and is arguably just as dangerous as Khabib on the ground.
Has Khabib Nurmagomedov met his match?
‘El Cucuy’ is notorious for his submissions, and his conditioning is unparalleled.
However, if the virtual simulation is anything to go by, Nurmagomedov might defend his title a third time. No other fighter has dominated the octagon as much as ‘The Eagle’. Moreover, Khabib has lost just one round in his entire career. His stand-up game has grown leaps and bounds, with his devastating overhand that knocked McGregor down a testament to his abilities.
Despite the situation, fight fans can be assured this match-up will take place. Dana White has guaranteed fans that despite the pandemic, the UFC will carry on with their business as usual. The organizer confirmed that the event will take place behind closed doors in a new location.
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson is undoubtedly the biggest fight in the UFC. With the lightweight title at stake, this is surely a fight we fight fans cannot miss.
