Khabib Nurmagomedov recently claimed that fighters only talk about him when he’s injured, and that comment clearly didn’t sit well with Tony Ferguson.

The lightweight fighters have been scheduled to fight on three occasions, but each time, the bout’ s fallen through. Most recently, this past March, Nurmagomedov had to withdraw from a fight with Ferguson one day out, as a result of medical issues he incurred while cutting weight.

Recently Nurmagomedov tweeted out the statement below, and Ferguson proceeded to respond with a fiery tweet of his own.

Nurmagomedov is currently booked to fight Edson Barboza at UFC 219 on December 30th. The undefeated Nurmagomedov hasn’t fought since last November, when he submitted Michael Johnson.
