MMA fans can longer blame Khabib Nurmagomedov for pulling out of UFC 249, as the PPV has been officially postponed amidst the global outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. However, Tony Ferguson is in no mood of letting his Dagestani rival off the hook. Tony Ferguson recently took a shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov with an old jibe that goes back to 2017 and the lightweight champion is yet to respond. Here’s how Tony Ferguson ‘El Cucuy’ stunned the UFC universe by trolling the undefeated lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC 249: Tony Ferguson slams Khabib Nurmagomedov

Tony Ferguson recently posted a picture from his official handle and mocked Khabibb Nurmagomedov with the tiramisu jibe that dates back to 2017. In 2017, Khabib Nurmagomedov failed to make the weight limit and was hospitalised before his UFC 209 fight opposite Tony Ferguson. Khabib vs Tony Ferguson, therefore, had to be called off. A few days before the official weigh-ins, Khabib Nurmagomedov was filmed at a restaurant along with his friends, eating tiramisu. According to Tony Ferguson, the tiramisu cost Khabib the fight and the American has been mocking Khabib since then.
