Ferguson Calls Khabib Lazy

Tony Ferguson was not impressed with Khabib Nurmagomedov’s performance last weekend at UFC 242 against Dustin Poirier.

Ferguson who is next-in-line to fight the UFC lightweight champion felt that Nurmagomedov was lazy against the former interim champion under the bright lights and stifling heat of Abu Dhabi.

“Lazy, one-dimensional,” Ferguson told Ariel Helwani for ESPN.

“When I see someone pushing against the cage and not really doing much, just kind of putting themselves as a wet blanket. When I fought Danny Castillo, he did the same kind of thing. It’s interesting how Khabib fights but to me it’s just boring. It’s lazy.”
