UFC 249 Preview
People have slanted UFC 249: Khabib vs Ferguson as the biggest fight in the history of the UFC lightweight division. The lightweight world champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will put his current title on the line to fight against Tony Ferguson.
Although Khabib has an excellent record, the existence of Ferguson is indeed terrifying. He is the winner of 12 in a row. That means he is at his full throttles now. Nurmagomedov has won over Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. It is definitely one of the most spectacular events to watch from your convenient places.
Meanwhile, in the same card, Rose Namajunas finally reserved the spot to take a revenge on taking Jessica Andrade. This will be a rematch of the strawweight championship.
Then in the heavyweights, we are going to watch Gian Villante who will take on Ben Rothwell.
In the featherweight division, we are going to witness the actions of Jeremy Stephens who is going to fight against Calvin Kattar.
Fifth is the charm
It seems that “Third is the charm” wouldn’t work for this pairing. Well, the pairing parties have been attempting to make the fight happen for many times before. And four previous attempts were cancelled for various sensible reasons. Here are the separate occasions where the fight cancelled by the organizer:
- The Ultimate Fighter: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber Finale
- UFC on FOX: Teixeira vs Evans
- UFC 209
- UFC 223
Over the last four years, the big fans of the both fighters should hold their breath because of the cancellations.
It is the fifth agreement so far, and it looks like that the agreement will stick to the end. We are likely going to see Khabib and Ferguson trade fists in the octagon in April.
Back then in the press release, we can see such competitive ambiances from both fighters. As expected, the talks were not peaceful at all. Ferguson even claimed that he’d already been in Khabib’s head before the UFC 249 showdown.
Both parties have been pretty intense lately because of the heated war of words happening in the press release and their social media. Of course, this builds up the emotions and makes the fight hotter than before.
