Fans might finally be able to see the most awaited face-off in UFC, but with a different twist-
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
"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.
Tony Ferguson made his UFC debut winning the 13th season of TUF.
