Speaking at the “Mo Hosani Podcast,” the owner of the 10th Planet Jiujitsu and jiujitsu instructor of the former interim lightweight champion, said that unlike previous opponents, Tony Ferguson will be on the offensive when Khabib takes him to the ground.
The jiujitsu coach said: “With the caliber of that fight, I don’t make predictions, but we are planning to win” “I can’t say much but all the fighters run so Khabib doesn’t take them to the ground, they pass it by going to the cage Where they try to stand, Tony won’t do that; He is going to attack, so it will be different. He will attack with submissions and elbows. Tony won’t try to get up .”
It is known that Tony Ferguson represents more danger when he rises from adversity. The most relevant cases were Anthony Pettis and Kevin being the last submitted by the triangle, after he was controlling “The Cucuy” during much of the fight.
