Tony Ferguson Calls Out Two UFC Stars To Earn Shot Against Khabib Nurmagomedov

Tony Ferguson Calls Out Two UFC Stars To Earn Shot Against Khabib Nurmagomedov

Tony Ferguson has called for a showdown against Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier to earn a UFC title shot against the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Justin Gaethje.

Ferguson's 12-fight winning streak was snapped by Gaethje at UFC 249 in April, but he's "hungry" and "eager" to return to the Octagon.

'El Cucuy' is hoping to be matched with McGregor or Poirier so he can get a shot at the UFC lightweight title.

Speaking about his future, he said: "I'm just anxious for the future. I really am. They know how hungry and eager I am in the UFC.

"You want to give me Conor [McGregor], give me Conor. You want to give me [Dustin] Poirier, we'll make it happen and then we'll fight and then we'll fight the winner of the Gaethje and Khabib fight."

Ferguson added: "I would love to compete against Khabib, Poirier, McGregor. Those are the three right there. Why? Talent-wise, that's why.

"Not because of any other ways or means. Because of the talent and the athletic respect that I have for their talent that they have in this sport."

Poirier appears to be interested in fighting Ferguson as he took to social media to react to being called out.

McGregor, of course, is retired after walking away from the UFC last month but a clash against Ferguson could tempt him out of retirement.

Ferguson beat the likes of Rafael dos Anjos, Kevin Lee, Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone during his incredible run in the UFC.

He'll be looking to bounce back after suffering his first defeat since 2012.
