Nurmagomedov: “Forget ‘fake’ champ McGregor, Ferguson title fight is ‘people’s main event”

“I know before I don’t fight for the title because before I make mistakes,” Nurmagomedov said. “I had injuries, I had surgery because I was wrong. But at UFC 205 I should have fought for the title. (McGregor’s) Uncle Dana gave him a gift. I have to fight all contenders. Tony Ferguson before this fight have eight-win streak. I have seven-win streak. Why don’t we fight? Because this is a business matchup. This is money fight. This is why they make this fight. I understand, but people know who is the real fighter, who is the high-level fighter in the lightweight division.”
