Morning Report: Tony Ferguson discusses the process to book fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov

Last week, after months of speculation, Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson became official. Its the bout everyone has been waiting for but there were some concerns as to whether the fight would actually happen. For one, Nurmagomedov and Ferguson have been booked to fight many times before with something happening to derail it each time, and for another, there were rumors that the UFC and Ferguson weren’t seeing eye-to-eye on some aspects of the bout. Ultimately, the fight obviously got made and while it wasn’t a walk in the park, Ferguson says at the end of the day it all got taken care of and he’s happy with the outcome.
