Tony Ferguson should’ve waited for Khabib Nurmagomedov. That’s easy to say in hindsight, of course, but I was thinking it when their latest scheduled fight, which was supposed to take place here, was canceled for the fifth time and Justin Gaethje stepped in as a replacement.
Gaethje might, in some ways, be a harder opponent. The amount of times Ferguson gets popped with power shots clean to the face is staggering. It’s a testament to his “chin”, but, aside from a nasty uppercut at the end of Round 2, he doesn’t have much of an answer for it.
