Tony Ferguson took a dig at Khabib Nurmagomedov in the interview.
"I'm going to be real, the last couple of fights I didn't prepare like I should have. I didn't take the opportunities I wanted to. I'm not going to say on purpose, but I want to be real. There was enough film out there for Khabib to take a fight and the p***y's still running."- Tony Ferguson
