Dana White is ready to book Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson for the 6th time

Tony Ferguson vs Khabib Nurmagomedov is, without a doubt, the most cursed fight in UFC history. The fight has never happened, despite five bookings for the same. However, one of the half pairing, Tony Ferguson, isn’t overly eager for the contest.

Dana White said that he would be willing to risk an asteroid strike to book the fight again.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, UFC President Dana White revealed that even with all the failed bookings, he hasn’t given up on Khabib vs. Ferguson.

“If Khabib does beat Gaethje, you get Tony Ferguson another fight, which we’re working on right now. And hopefully that fight with Khabib happens because I know people want to see it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fight fall apart as many times as those two. It almost scares me to make the fight again. What’s going to happen? An asteroid comes to earth? That’s the level of bad this thing is.”

Ferguson, who more than deserved his shot at the title after stringing together 12 wins in a row, was then offered Gaethje as a replacement for an interim title and guaranteed fight with Khabib, even though he already had one. 

October 24 has been circled in red pen by all MMA fans ever since the date was finalised for the most anticipated fight of the year between Khabib Nurmagomedov Justin Gaethje. 

Many believe this will be the hardest test of Khabib’s undefeated career thus far but at the start of the year, a title shot for Gaethje seemed some distance away.
