“I don’t follow both of them, but one has 12 battles without defeats, and the second has three - according to statistics Ferguson should have won. This is a complete declassification from Gatgey. Could it be a problem for Habib? No, he can not. Gatzhi is not fighting, ”Sport24 quotes Kharitonov.

He also noted that Ferguson held the punch until the fight was stopped. In addition, he admitted that his duel with Nurmagomedov could still take place.

Gatgy defeated Ferguson by technical knockout in the fifth round of the main fight at UFC 249 in Jacksonville and became the first contender for the title fight with the current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. For Ferguson, this defeat was the first in eight years.

Earlier, UFC fighter Ramazan Emeev expressed the opinion that neither Gatgi nor Ferguson are problematic rivals for Nurmagomedov.
