American mixed-style fighter Tony Ferguson erupted in a tirade against the head of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Dana White. The post is available on the American’s Twitter.
“Khabib Nurmagomedov avoided Tony at his peak. But now the old Ferguson is no more, he is over. Therefore, there is a chance that Khabib will enter the fight, ”this quote was attributed to White, although in reality the promoter never said it. Nevertheless, Ferguson commented on the fake statement.
“Is it over? I’ll show you who’s over. I’m furious!” — wrote 38-year-old American. Users in the comments drew his attention to the dubious origin of the original quote.
Nurmagomedov and Ferguson could have repeatedly collided in the octagon of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Their duel broke down five times. Nurmagomedov is a former UFC lightweight champion. Ferguson became the owner of the interim champion belt in the same weight category.
