Tony Ferguson Picks Jon Jones Over Rival Khabib Nurmagomedov In UFC GOAT Debate

Tony Ferguson Picks Jon Jones Over Rival Khabib Nurmagomedov In UFC GOAT Debate

Tony Ferguson has weighed in on the UFC GOAT debate and he thinks Jon Jones deserves the accolade more than longtime rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov retired on Saturday night after defeating Justin Gaethje to retain his lightweight title and take his record inside the octagon to 29-0.

He has been named pound for pound number one in the wake of his retirement and Jones hit out at the decision earlier this week.

Beneath Jones' tweet, in which he said Conor McGregor is the only man he fought with name value, Ferguson replied: "This guy gets it."

Nurmagomedov and Ferguson were slated to face each other five times throughout their careers but it never came off, with their most recent scheduled bout at UFC 249 halted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Gaethje stepped in and replaced Nurmagomedov at UFC 249, defeating Ferguson to become interim champion and earn a shot at 'The Eagle' this past weekend.

With the lightweight title set to be vacated, Ferguson has admitted he is keen to face Dustin Poirier to declare a new champion.

"I called out everyone on one post and Dustin already f*****g said let's do it... The way I called it, was it has to have myself and you got to have Dustin Poirier for the title," Ferguson told Submission Radio.
