Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Might Finally Happen, But in TUF

The rivalry between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov has been going on for years.

Both were scheduled to fight each other many times. But, the fight never happened.

But, Tony Ferguson still wants to compete against the former UFC lightweight champion.

In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Ferguson suggested that he and Khabib should go head to head in The Ultimate Fighter.

"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

"I guarantee my coaching is a lot better than yours, Khabib... It doesn't matter what game we play, it would be cool to go out there, shake the dude's hand, squash some beef, and move on."- Tony Ferguson

Tony Ferguson made his UFC debut by winning The Ultimate Fighter season 13.

So it is not a bad idea for UFC to bring Ferguson back to TUF, which is struggling to get the attention of the fans.

It's highly unlikely that Khabib Nurmagomedov would accept the callout from Ferguson.

But, the fans would certainly love to watch Khabib and Tony squash their beef at TUF.
