Khabib Nurmagomedov is never one to shy away from throwing verbal jabs at his fellow lightweights. The undefeated Dagestani fighter, who holds a win over former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, frequently makes headlines for talking trash in interviews and getting in Twitter feuds.
With the UFC announcing Rafael dos Anjos vs. Tony Ferguson, Nurmagomedov believes a title fight with Eddie Alvarez is imminent.
Nurmagomedov spoke to BloodyElbow to fire back at Tony Ferguson for accusing him of using PEDs, revealing that USADA did find something in one of his drug tests.
“THIS MORON FERGUSON HAS CONCERNS ABOUT MY DOPING TESTS. HEY IDIOT, I WAS TESTED 11 TIMES, AND 11 TIMES ANTIDOPING AGENCY FOUND TOO MUCH COURAGE IN MY SAMPLES, UNLIKE YOUR COWARDLY EYES, THAT YOU WAS HIDING WHEN WE MET IN PERSON.”
Nurmagomedov is coming off a 2nd round TKO win over UFC newcomer Darrel Horcherback in April. The fight was the first in over two years for Nurmagomedov, who was repeatedly forced to pull out of fights with injuries.
