The Russian fighter has commented on the upcoming fight for the belt at UFC against Tony Ferguson.

The Russian easily weight of UFC Habib Nurmagomedov believes that Conor McGregor will win the battle with him if he will win the belt.

“Tony Ferguson is still the interim champion, but when we fight, we will fight for the vacant title in the lightweight division.

He showed me his belt (at the press conference – approx.) but for me it’s a fake belt. I will fight for the real belt, I don’t need his fake title.

Stripped of the UFC Conor McGregor for the belt. As then stripped of his belt at Featherweight. Tony will fight for the real belt.

I can’t understand why the media continues to ask, deprive you of Conor’s title. Of course, the UFC stripped him. Now he has to earn his title chance.

My plan is to beat Ferguson. And if the UFC will try to put me against McGregor, he needs to earn that chance. I’ll tell Conor: “Hey, get in line”, – quotes Nurmagomedov RedFuryMMA.

Recall that the fight Nurmagomedov and Ferguson for the full title of the easy weight category will be held on April 7 at UFC 223.
