Not long ago Kevin Lee was convinced that Khabib Nurmagomedov have no problem beating Tony Fergsuon, the former 155-pound interim belt challenger has changed his mind.
This April 18, the Russian will expose his belt in front of ‘El Cucuy’ in the UFC 249 , and Lee, who was defeated by Ferguson, believes that the interim champ will eliminate Khabib in April.
“Khabib’s the number one contender, and Conor’s sitting on the outside for that”. “I don’t know. I like that [Ferguson vs. Nurmagomedov] fight. I think that fight’s a lot more interesting than people give it credit for. I don’t know. I think Tony will be better all around, and be able to wear down on Khabib, and then he’ll go out there, he’ll beat the hell out of Conor, and I think I’m going to squeeze my way up in there one way or another.”
