The third number of the UFC lightweight rating Tony Ferguson, who suffered a crushing defeat from Justin Gaitji in the previous fight, is convinced not only that he is worthy of a fight for the title, but also believes that he should become the highest-paid fighter in the division, not counting Conor McGregor.
“Don’t pay anyone more than me,” Ferguson told Submission Radio. “If you pay more to Conor, I’ll understand that. But everyone else can’t get more than me, especially newcomers like Chandler»
“I have earned this right. I’ve been here since the beginning. I earned it by going through Fuel TV, Spike TV, FOX, ESPN, and losing sponsors because of the Reebok contract. I went all the way with them, from being a real humble guy to a tough ass, and they have a duty to reward a genius like me».
According to the UFC plan, Tony Ferguson should meet former Bellator champion Michael Chandler in the next fight, however, the veteran of the largest MMA promotion made it clear that he expects to fight Dustin Porier for the UFC title, which will become vacant due to the retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Former UFC Middleweight champion, Michael Bisping, believes that Jon Jones can not claim the title of the greatest fighter of all time, because he has repeatedly become involved in doping scandals and was caught on the use of anabolic steroids.
“When Khabib looks up at the sky, he sees stars, and Jon Jones doesn’t see stars – he sees a huge blot the size of the Universe on his career,” Bisping said in the next edition of the MMA today podcast. “George Saint-pyerr, Henry Cejudo, Demetrius Johnson, I see a lot of stars, while Anderson Silva and Jon Jones are on another planet, and instead of stars I look at the stain on his career, merging in one huge stain”
According to the British, Russian lightweight can rightfully claim the title of greatest fighter of all time.
“The greatest of all time – Khabib or George St. Pierre? In my opinion, this is Khabib. He went to the top, he’s undefeated, only lost two rounds in his entire career, and I don’t think we’ll see him again in battle”
Recall that last weekend, Khabib Nurmagomedov has combined acting and interim titles in the UFC lightweight division, finishing a triangle choke in the second round of the Justin Haiti, after which he announced his resignation.
