Khabib Nurmagomedov has finally spoken up since his media silence since it was confirmed he would defend his UFC Lightweight Championship against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 in April 2020.

Khabib has fought some of the best UFC Lightweights ever including Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, however he believes he's finally motivated for a fight with a 'worthy opponent' in Tony Ferguson.

The current Champ said when he was being interviewed that he lacked motivation in his last ten fights and the fight with Ferguson has brought back the 'fire inside him'.

"I will train hard. With every fight, I gain more and more experience. I'm getting older, I am 31. I think it's the peak age of a fighter's career. Of course, I will train more for this fight because I got a worthy opponent. He is very good and very dangerous opponent."

"...And to be honest, I lacked this motivation for my last fights. Iaquinta, Conor, Barboza, Poirier. They're not the same as Tony Ferguson. That's why I feel that fire burning inside me again."

Ferguson and Khabib are scheduled to face each other for the first time on April 18th, 2020 in Brooklyn.
