Tony Ferguson Drops A Chilling Warning To Khabib Nurmagomedov Ahead Of Their UFC Showdown
Tony Ferguson has pulled no punches towards Khabib Nurmagomedov and vowed to make him "piss blood."
Ferguson and Khabib have been scheduled to fight on four previous occasions, but the UFC super-fight was derailed due to different circumstances.
But now Ferguson has penned a deal to fight the UFC lightweight champion on 18th April 2020 in New York.
The 35-year-old UFC star made an appearance on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday and sent a clear warning to Khabib ahead of their hotly-anticipated clash.
"I told everybody I'm going to make him piss blood. I said that a while ago," he said.
"This guy has got an issue and his name is Tony Ferguson and I'm coming after him.
"It's hunting season, baby."
Ferguson is on a 12-match winning streak and believes that he is the man ready to end the undefeated run of Khabib.
And 'El Cucuy' revealed that he wants a face-to-face confrontation with Khabib before the end of 2019, saying that it would most likely take place on 13th December in the build-up to UFC 245 in Las Vegas.
"I'm going to keep poking the bear, I'm going to make sure that Khabib shows up -- that he's going to see me before this year's done," he explained.
"He's going to understand. He's going to go through the holidays and he's going to be wondering about me. I'm going to be in his head again.
"He's going to have a lot on his plate, and I think they got a little too arrogant with the way they handled things.
"I'm in this dude's head. He's going to train so hard and he's going to be so nervous that he's going to make a mistake. I'm going to capitalise on that. I'm going to catch him during the scramble."
During his appearance on the MMA Show, Ferguson offered his verdict on the upcoming blockbuster clash between Donald Cerrone and Conor McGregor.
