One the people in this situation is none other than UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov who was supposed to take on Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. For now, . Ferguson and UFC fans are upset at this development as the former wants Khabib to be stripped his title.
Now, is weighing in on this in light the fact that Ferguson wants Conor to be Khabib's replacement. McGregor is respectfully declining the invitation although the UFC legend is claiming that Khabib has chickened out the fight and that Ferguson should be rightfully declared the winner.
"The fact this matter is, both Tony and Khabib where engaged in a game chicken here towards the fight bell. With Khabib chickening out first. Making it 3-2 in pullouts in Tony’s favour. Khab scurried out the U.S to home, and amid the crisis. Very high risk," McGregor wrote.
