Ferguson’s previous opinion
“If you want to give me Conor, give me Conor. If you want to give me Poirier, we will make it happen. Then I will fight the winner of the fight Gaethje and Khabib. In my situation, I can make adjustments on the fly. I feel bad for many of these up-and-coming fighters who just got their professional license or are looking for fights and don’t know what to do. Or for these college athletes who don’t know what’s going on with their future or how they’re going to be selected in the draft. It’s crazy, ”Tony had said earlier.
Dustin Poirier spoke with MMAJunkie a long time ago and expressed that he would rather have another opportunity to fight Nurmagomedov over McGregor. “When I was younger, I could have wanted to fight Conor or fight anyone. But I feel comfortable with everything. I feel comfortable with my track record, with the things that I have done, the fights that I have done. In the fights I lost, I learned my lessons and tried to keep moving forward », highlighted the martial artist from UFC.
