Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson is offcial for UFC 249 on April 18, 2020 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
 
Ferguson has won twelve fights in a row, winning eight performance bonuses in the last eight fights. And he has a colorful, cursed relationship with the lightweight champ Nurmagomedov - four times the pair has seen fights canceled.
 
During a recent appearance on The Ariel Helwani Show, "El Cucuy" said he doesn't want to hear any talk about a curse.
 
 
“Don’t even put the words out there,” said Ferguson, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. “Don’t even get the fans going on that s***. I want the encouragement. Everybody that was like, ‘Ah this is a curse,’ f*** you! Don’t buy our stuff, we don’t want you. Go watch Bellator or some other bulls***. Go find some knockoff copy of what we’ve got going on here. These are the OGs. I’m original genius and these guys right here, they want to try and be gangster and s*** like that. Hey, you’ve got to answer to me, Khabib. Right here, toe to toe motherf***er, and we’re gonna go.”
 
“You’re going to have to ask the UFC [why the fight is so far out]. Khabib is still on his world tour. He’s doing things, kissing babies and signing pictures and doing all that fun stuff. Who cares? You know I’m ready for February. I was ready to take another opponent if they were going to f***ing do some crazy stuff but everything worked out. So we’ve got until April. We’ve got plenty of time to train. We’ve got plenty of time to not get hurt, to be very smart, to trust our teams, and give the fans exactly what they f***ing want. Fifth time’s a charm.”
 
“[Negotiatons for the fight were] about as smooth as a bumpy road, but we got to our destination, which was pretty cool. The process wasn’t the way I envisioned it going. That’s why I wanted to sit down with the UFC. It’s about time we actually started having conversations and me being a little bit more personable with the company. It went good. I can’t say that it went bad. It just took a little bit time and a process.”
 
“I’m in this dude’s head. He’s looking at me. He’s going to train so hard, he’s going to be so nervous, and he’s going to make a mistake. I’m going to capitalize on that. I’m going to catch him during the scramble. Scrambled eggs, baby. I told everybody, I’m going to make him piss blood. I owe him two to the chops and he owes me 20 push-ups... This guy’s got an issue and his name is Tony Ferguson, and I’m coming after him. It’s hunting season, baby.”

Tony F, is a strange guy. 

He's also a scary guy. 

He's also a bad motherfucker guy.

He's also the toughest fighter guy Khabib has faced.

Tony F. could be a super famous rich guy if everything falses in place for him.

They should put the both of them on the cover of the next EA UFC game to double up the curse.

Through dark and light I fight to be
So close, shadows and lies mask you from me
So close, bathe my skin the darkness within
So close, the war of our lives no one can win

The missing piece I yearn to find
So close, please clear the anguish from my mind
So close, but when the truth of you comes clear
So close, I wish my life had never come near
So close.

Through dark and light I fight to be
So close, shadows and lies mask you from me.

Through the darkness of future's past

The magician longs to see.

One chants out between two worlds...

"Fire... walk with me."
