Khabib Nurmagomedov finally responded to Tony Ferguson’s frequent messages about a fight between them going down sometime in the future.

Nurmagomedov (29-0 MMA, 13-0 UFC) and Ferguson (25-5 MMA, 15-3 UFC) have one of the most notable rivalries in UFC history that never resulted in a fight. The pair were scheduled to share the octagon five times from 2015-2020, but each time something came up that prevented it from happening.

Now Nurmagomedov is retired from MMA competition, vacating the UFC lightweight title he held for multiple years. All signs point to him sticking true to his decision to hang up the gloves, meaning a fight with Ferguson will never materialize.

Still, though, that hasn’t stopped Ferguson from mentioning it and showing confidence he’ll eventually get his hands on Nurmagomedov (via Twitter):

“Tira🍮Misu On 2” 🏈 # You’ll SeeMeSoonEnoughBuddy ⚔🕶 -CSO- 🇺🇸🏆🇲🇽 # 🔱 Called It. # ConditioningSucks # KeepRunningFathead -Champ 👣

It’s not the first time Ferguson has gone after Nurmagomedov online since his final fight against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 in September. “The Eagle” has remained quite in response to his rival, but on Wednesday he came forward.

Ferguson has a critical fight in his career booked against Beneil Dariush at UFC 262 on May 15 in Houston. “El Cucuy” enters the bout on a two-fight losing skid, and if the former interim lightweight titleholder wants to reclaim his former glory, a win is a must.

Nurmagomedov reminded Ferguson of as much, and gave him well wishes before sending him off with an insult.

You have a fight soon, your opponent is very tough and most underestimated in lightweight division, focus on him. I wish you and your family best, even though you look like a shit.
