Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov were scheduled to fight multiple times but unfortunately, they never faced each other. The Russian is now retired from the UFC but Ferguson still wants to compete against him.

Tony Ferguson was recently on Submission Radio and detailed what he'd like to do against Khabib Nurmagomedov since they'll never fight. He still wants an activity that involves the UFC.

“Maybe one day. You know what I would like to do? I’d love to coach against him on The Ultimate Fighter. That’s what I would really love to do. Abso-fucking-lutly. And if we don’t fight, I would love to be able to compete on him with whatever. Wrestleball. Like, in basketball, soccer. You put your best team together, I got my team.

“Any kind of sport. You can pick it, Khabib. We’ll go out there and we’ll kick your ass out of due respect. Enjoy your retirement. And I like what he’s doing for the sport. He opened up his own promotion. Got props for him like that. And when he lost his pops, you know, respect for him for that.

“But yeah, at the end of the day, his dad said that he would love for us to compete. So, regardless if that’s MMA or any sport, chess, checkers, fucking cars, it doesn’t matter. I have enough respect or enough cool to not go over there and kick his ass, but enough to be able to shake the man’s hand and sit down at a game table and to play a game like that. That’s man shit.“
