UFC 209 Preview Show: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson

After 11 months off, he did exactly what he had to do to win that fight, and he looked great in doing so. Nurmagomedov will probably initiate the contest by charging Ferguson, timing a takedown, and assuming top control for the most part of the bout. Shevchenko, who trained with Berry for nearly two months prior to stepping in front of the cameras, is finished working on the film. He's also a black belt in Eddie Bravo's 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu system. He ended up facing Edson Barboza and Tony submitted him in the 2nd round.

Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Before putting Nurmagomedov-Ferguson in the rearview mirror, though, here's a closer look at that booking's ill-fated history. Poirier is a talented boxer with an underrated submission game, and Nurmagomedov overwhelmed him on the floor. But it's less outlandish fantasy than the notion that Ferguson can pull off a submission from underneath a Dagestani lead blanket. Give us your comment and subscribe if you like this video! But if you tell me Ferguson might do something wild and land or get a close submission attempt, I wouldn't be shocked, either.

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson close to finalized for April

Dana White soon announced that Ferguson will be stripped of the interim title. Ferguson seems to be next in line for Nurmagomedov, but if that's the case Abdelaziz wants Gaethje to either get the winner later next year or fight Conor McGregor in McGregor's comeback fight. The ground-and-pound finish comes in the second round. Ultimately, I see it going the distance. Nurmagomedov was pretty dominant against Poirier and finished the fight in the third round with a rear-naked choke. I cite that to acknowledge that my predictable forecasting of another Nurmagomedov victory here is based on my own chronically narrow vision, not on some deficiency in Ferguson's game.

It has to be noted that this fight is in New York. Josh Thomson considers Tony Ferguson a tough opponent for any fighter since Ferguson is comfortable wherever the fight goes. Max Holloway was to step in for Ferguson, but he withdrew because of a bad weight cut. If you go back and look at the names that he beat β€” 10-8 rounds against guys, two or three 10-8 rounds against Edson Barboza, just by example β€” this guy is a hammer. How do you expect the fight to play out? All was not lost, however: Ferguson was replaced by featherweight champion Max Holloway, who will take on Nurmagomedov on short notice. Ferguson does a lot more in his victories.

In his mind, it would be an opportunity to reinforce a psychological advantage he feels like he holds over Nurmagomedov. He can also kick Nurmagomedov off and stand up β€” but it is much easier said than done. Even though we've seen it many times before, it was impressive. Prior to their latest canceled fight in 2018, Nurmagomedov was set at -200 and Ferguson was at +165. He's going to train so hard and he's going to be so nervous that he's going to make a mistake.

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson

Nurmagomedov pulled out in 2015 and 2017 due to injury and weight issues. Maybe what he meant was Nurmagomedov looked so comfortable in controlling Poirier from top position that it was as though Khabib were relaxing in a recliner. But Ferguson is not someone who should be overlooked. Even Dana White had mentioned that he will never book Khabib vs Ferguson fight ever again. He is famous for his unorthodox stalking style and overwhelming pressure.
