The news was first confirmed by Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

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.

This time Khabib has already signed the bout agreement and the fight would be official once Tony signs the agreement as well.

Nurmagomedov last fought at UFC 242, where he defeated Dustin Poirier via submission in the fourth round. Ferguson’s last win was over Donald Cerrone earlier this year at UFC 238.
