Khabib Nurmagomedov faces Justin gaethje at UFC 254, but the Russian is already beginning to analyze another variable. The undefeated champion continues to give something to talk about, since he does not see close to being defeated. At the same time, apart from the threats that he constantly receives from the American, he does not lose his head when they meet in the last days of October. The doubt passes if he is taken for granted, as he looks beyond his next contest.
“Honestly, I feel a bit bad, and at the same time, I understand. I texted my manager Ali Abdelaziz and said right before the fight, Tony ferguson you had surgery on your left leg, right? If Gaethje gives him, in the beginning of the fight, a couple of good kicks, the fight is over. When the fight started, Tony Ferguson started fighting as a left-handed man, ”the Russian fighter began.
At the same time, Khabib He also mentioned: “But Tony is not a southpaw. Well, the first round is over, and then Ferguson gets a little nervous that his plan doesn’t work. Second round, it doesn’t work. At the end of the round he gave Gaethje a good shot, uppercut. Third round, after the third round, it was over. For me it was finished. No one can be the same for long. Neither Tony Ferguson, nor Khabib, nobody”.
Nurmagomedov was clear
“One day someone will hit you, or something will happen. God does not give anyone, power, reaction, mental, everything on one level always. One day he will go down and his day came in May. I understand, the time of Tony ferguson is over. Now he’s going to come back, someone’s going to hit him again, I think. Because when you take damage like this, you will never be the same again. Never again. Even if you are Tony Ferguson. Take too much damage. Do you see how he tapped, how he gave up at the end of the five rounds? ”He added to his remarks.
Concluding with his words, Khabib Nurmagomedov He left him a strong message: ‘Stupid. Maybe if he comes back I will hit him, but I don’t think this is possible. You can come to Fight Island and fight Islam Makhachev. He has a six-fight winning streak. It’s almost in the top 10. He has a name. Why not? Why don’t you want to take this fight? UFC is going to make you good money. Very good chances to fight Islam Makhachev, maybe he can fight for the title if he wins, but I think his time is up.
