UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is all set to defend his title against former interim champion Tony ‘El Cucuy’ Ferguson at UFC 249, which will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on April 18.

Fans have been longing to see this fight for a long time now. UFC has previously booked the fight four times and all four times have both fighters pulled out. Khabib Nurmagomedov pulled out of fights in 2015 and 2017 because of injuries, while Tony Ferguson also pulled out in 2016 and 2018 for the very same reason.

Therefore there are concerns if the fight will come into fruition this time as well. To makes matters slightly concerning for MMA fans, Tony indulges in lot of unconventional training techniques. He has posted a video recently, which he throws a baseball, slides around on a heavy bag, and dances in a compression therapy suit.

Tony Ferguson has fought one-time a year since 2017. Last year at UFC 238, he defeated Donald Cerrone via TKO in the second round. Before that, he fought at UFC 229, where he again defeated Anthony Pettis via TKO in the second round. Back in 2016, he defeated Kevin Lee via third-round submission at UFC 216.

Tony Ferguson’s mind games ahead of the Khabib fight

Last month in an interview on Ariel Helwani’s MMA show, Tony talked about his upcoming fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov and revealed that he is already winning the battle of the mind games.

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 capitalize on that. I’m going to catch him during the scramble.”
