UFC 265: Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson troll Khabib Nurmagomedov over ‘street-fight bragging: UFC lightweight elite Khabib Nurmagomedov has never shared a healthy relationship with Nate Diaz or Tony Ferguson, two of his biggest contemporaries. Similarly, ‘The Eagle’ has similar never faced either of the two in the UFC cage but the bad-blood relationship has evoked both sides to go dirty on each other.
That said, Tony Ferguson and Nate Diaz recently took a dig at Khabib Nurmagomedov, after the Dagestani star talked about his street-fighting days in Mike Tyson’s HotBoxin Podcast. In the past, both Tony Ferguson and Nate Diaz have raised questions regarding the credibility of Nurmagomedov’s street-fighting skills.
So, after the former lightweight champion boasted about his past fight in Dagestani streets, Diaz took to social media and misspelled Khabib’s name to lash out at the Russian star.
That kabobs full of shit

It didn’t stop there. Khabib Nurmagomedov had also revealed that his mother would have never allowed him to return home on losing a fight. While the former champion could end his career as an undefeated prodigy, Tony Ferguson didn’t forget to lash out at his long-time foe.
Tony Ferguson also took to social media and mocked Khabib Nurmagomedov, citing a possible reason why they could never meet inside the UFC cage. But that doesn’t seem to put a scratch on Nurmagomedov’s unbeaten career.

Khabib Nurmagomedov and his big UFC career
In just less than a decade in the UFC, Khabib Nurmagomedov could become an all-time legend of MMA. He came across some of the best fighters in the lightweight division, including the likes of Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, and Justin Gaethje, and beat them all.
However, the 32-year-star could have continued fighting. UFC president Dana White wanted to stage many more fights for Khabib Nurmagomedov. But the Russian star hung his gloves for well and has shown no intentions of returning to the cage.
