Khabib Teases UFC Return To Face Tony Ferguson on TUF

Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov has been called off multiple times for different reasons.

But it seems there is finally a breakthrough!

Fans might finally be able to see the most awaited face-off in UFC, but with a different twist-

Tony Ferguson is still keen on meeting Khabib as his opponent after all these years.

He earlier proposed the idea of going against his long time rival in TUF, as a coach.

"I believe when (Khabib Nurmagomedov's) dad said we were supposed to compete, I believe that. I would love to be able to coach against him on The Ultimate Fighter. How about that?"- Tony Ferguson

And it seems the wait is over for Tony and fans as there is finally a positive response from Khabib!

"Tony I like the idea about TUF, call your bosses and let them make an offer, but if they don’t have ideas, I myself will offer you a deal on the @EagleFightClub platform, we doing some business here you know." - Khabib via twitter.

Khabib brought the idea of Eagle FC to the table as well, if TUF fails.

Eagle FC is a MMA promotion company owned by Khabib himself.

Tony Ferguson made his UFC debut winning the 13th season of TUF.

It will only make sense for Tony to be seen as a coach on the show in future.  Are you excited to witness the most hyped face-off on UFC?
