“We are starting again. The champion has signed a fight agreement against Tony Ferguson. During this time the man asked for a fight and he now gets it on April 18 The Eagle will land in Brooklyn once again. This one is for fans,” cried Abdelaziz.
“Certainly Tony Ferguson cannot be underestimated, he won 12 battles in a row for a reason. We will undergo the best training and with confidence in God, the two fighters will continue to be fit.”
Abdelaziz is quite certain that the battle of Khabib vs Ferguson will take place, although the UFC has not officially confirmed it. On the other hand, Ferguson reportedly had not signed the agreement because he wanted further negotiations.
Ferguson is said to be very interested in facing the Russian fighter nicknamed The Eagle. However, until Ferguson signed the agreement, the UFC could only state that the battle was being carried out. Thus proclaimed Metro.
