And what does he hope to do next, if this doesn't come to fruition?

This time he has targeted the main event participants of UFC 254- Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje- by picking a still from the pre-fight presser event of UFC 254, and then implying some editing trickery in the selected image.

The victor of May's Gaethje vs. Ferguson bout was obviously guaranteed the next shot to "The Eagle" and thus the stakes were massive. Whether "The Eagle" gives it to him remains to be seen - and that's even if the former two-weight champion goes on to defeat Dustin Poirier in a proposed January 23rd fight. "Tony Ferguson is finished now", Nurmagomedov recently told ESPN. He can't put that sh*t in my head.

As we previously reported, several Khabib fights have been scrapped at the last minute to due unforeseen circumstances. from bad weight cuts to freak injuries. He will see me before he retires. If I hadn't taken that fight, how many people would not have gotten paid? We'll make that a point.

Tony Ferguson recently stated that he would be willing to fight Michael Chandler later this year, although he's not certain the former Bellator champ deserves the opportunity. It's a safety net for the promotion to ensure its biggest bout goes on at UFC 254 on Saturday.

Ferguson strongly implied that Chandler (21-5), who has never fought in the UFC, would make more than him if they fought, based on their current contracts. Share your thoughts in the comments section Penn Nation!
