“Tony's time is over.
He's going to come back now, but someone will beat him again.
When you take damage as he did, you will never be the same.
Even if you're Tony Ferguson.
He took too many blows.
Tony is an excellent fighter, ”ESPN quotes Nurmagomedov.
He noted that Ferguson has the opportunity to get to "Boytsovsky Island", having accepted a duel with Islam Makhachev.
“Islam has a streak of six wins, he is almost in the top 10, he has a name, so why not?
The UFC will pay him well, Ali Abdel-Aziz will pay him.
If he wins, he might fight for the title.
But I don't think he will win.
I guess his time is up, ”added the UFC champion.
The 36-year-old Ferguson has 25 wins and four losses in mixed martial arts.
In his last fight to date, he lost to his compatriot Justin Gaethje.
Earlier, Nurmagomedov told how he reacted to Ferguson's defeat by Gatji.
