UFC instead booked Ferguson against Gaethje for the interim lightweight title at UFC 249 in May.

Ferguson, 36, made his UFC return on Saturday and suffered a unanimous decision victory against Charles Oliveira at UFC 256 in Las Vegas.

Speaking to ESPN in October, Khabib insisted that the punishment Ferguson took in the Gaethje fight meant that 'El Cucuy' would 'never be the same again.'
