Khabib Asks for Ferguson at UFC 219

On this weeks edition of the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Khabib Nurmagomedov called for Tony Ferguson at UFC 219. If you remember, Khabib and Tony Ferguson were scheduled to fight in Brooklyn at UFC 209, but Khabib was forced to pull out due to weight cutting complications. On the MMA Hour, Khabib went on to say he that he believes Ferguson is the real champion. He also went on to say that the UFC should do Nate Diaz vs McGregor 3 and him vs Tony. Die-hard fans seemed to be very interested in the Tony vs Khabib fight back in March, but did that ship sail, or are fans still very much interested in that bout. He went on to say how he knows he needs to fight and does not want 2017 to be a waste for him, his family, and his fans. Khabib said how Ferguson is the dream fight for him, and how he wants it at UFC 219. Do you think the UFC brass books him vs Ferguson and Conor vs Nate next?
