The negotiations for Khabib vs Ferguson
“El Cucuy” revealed how they went to Ariel Helwani.
“The way everything happened was not the way I wanted it to happen, so the week was a bit unpleasant. At least, my fans kept me cheerful.”
“All the way was bumpy, but we also arrived at our destination. But the process was not how I imagined it. That’s why I wanted to sit with UFC.”
“It’s time for us to start having conversations and for myself to be a little more pleasant with the company. Everything went well, I can not say otherwise.”
“I can only say that it took a little while, that it was a process. I am very fortunate to have my fans who support me.”
Ferguson did not want to tell more about why the week was “unpleasant” or what those bumps were on the road. But the good news is both sides reached an agreement for the combat.
