And as both men faced off, Ferguson bizarrely told Nurmagomedov to take off his glasses despite not wearing any.

Speaking after the presser, the 155lb king revealed: "He [Tony Ferguson] told me to take off my glasses. I said I don't have glasses. You have to take off your glasses."

Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson headlines a stacked UFC 249 card next month with Conor McGregor in line to face the winner.

But the Dagestan fighter's manager Ali Abdelaziz wants the Irishman to face No.4 ranked UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje, who wants a piece of 'The Notorious'.

"I think I put myself in a great position to fight for a world title, to try to be the best in the world," Gaethje explained.

"If Conor wants to go past me, he has to go through me. I think that's the only way to legitimise the process and make it right. I think that's the fight."
