Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz is apparently worried about Tony Ferguson. Khabib and Ferguson will fight for the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 223 on April 7 and Ali feels that it will be a dangerous situation for the Interim Lightweight Champion.

“I feel sorry for Tony Ferguson, because on April 7, Tony Ferguson is probably never gonna fight again. I’m concerned for his well-being, I’m serious. I’m not just saying that to promote a fight. I’m concerned for him,” Ali said in an interview with MMA Fighting.

One of Ali’s most notable clients, Khabib had secured a dominant win against Edson Barboza at UFC 219 and had delivered a similar performance against Michael Johnson prior to it.

And according to Ali, both these performances will be nothing compared to what Khabib has in store for Ferguson.

“It’s gonna be brutal, it’s gonna be ugly, it’s gonna be bloody. Because Khabib was very nice to Barboza, he was very nice to Michael Johnson. But I’m telling you something. One thing that Khabib is not gonna do, he’s not gonna be nice to Tony Ferguson. My prediction: Tony Ferguson will probably need to take two years off or maybe not come back after this fight.” Ali added.

The Khabib – Ferguson showdown will serve as the main event of UFC 223 whereas Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Rose Namajunas for the Women’s Strawweight Championship will be the co-main event.
