    khabib has never turned down a fight offered by the UFC. they didnt offer him tony, or anyone else for that matter. Tony has already turned Michael johnson on short notice off the couch at UFC 209, reason being (more money). you tony fans crying that khabib and conor want more money while your guy turns down 2nd tier fights for a few thousand bucks?

    tony would have been finished by either Max/Dustin. he gets Knocked down every fight, Anthony pettis tapped to a body triangle by Dustin and was finished by max. but he put tony on his ass with a broken hand.

    Tony is hittable and both those guys have way crispier striking than Lando vannata and anthony pettis. they would have finished him 100%.

    he knew hes losing and he turned down showing up to his death sentence. he would have missed his title shot either way.

    MMA math?

    Micheal Johnson couldn't finish one arm Tony but send Pea head to another dimension when they fought...

    Tony should get a shot at the title not the gimmie he already won, getting shafted from all angles, only hope for him is a red panty night!

    LMAO because Tony gets hurt every fight he would lose. Sound logic.

    Ferg ducked Max, simple as that. The UFC does not give two shits that he was previously interim champ, you grasp the opportunity or the division moves on without you.

    Tony should be fighting for the title not the worthless interim title.

    he got a title shot when he had his interim belt. he got injured and missed his shot. lets not act like his interim didnt get him a shot at the real gold.

    LOL Kevin lee? why the fuck should he take a fight with kevin lee? btw he was never offered a fight with either guys. twitter call outs arent not real contract offers from the ufc. tony has turned down 2 real contracts.

    Yeah well he didn't get his shot he got injured! His streak says it all, the only logical match up is Tony khabib, every true MMA fan knows this!

    i agree. but the ufc dont like guys that turn down fight. they like guys that step up. usman stepped up on short notice and was gifted a title shot. khabib accepted 4 different guys and was gifted better treatment. tony is fking himself up, in few months he will lose a fight and will forgotten. he turned down an interim now he aint getting shit. not interim not nothing.

    Tony has paid his dues, deserves the title shot and everyone knows it. If not that it should be Tony/Conor for the interim so that Tony gets a big may day and the next shot

    He'll get his fight with khabib eventually, khabib knows this needs to happen the fans know and the UFC know this fight needs to happen sooner or later! Just never know what's really round the corner with Dana!

    Tony turned down MJ because they only wanted to pay him half his money to fight on short notice.

    He turned down Max probably because he wants a fight with McGregor instead. Tony is on an 11 fight win streak, he's probably sick of going through contenders to earn a title shot that he already feels is rightfully his, so if Khabib is sitting out till November, then a fight with Conor for the attention and the payday is the one that interests him the most.

    Tony should turn down anyone that isn’t Khabib or Conor.

    Khabib getting suspended adds another long chapter to this novel of shit with Tony and Khabib NOT fighting.

    Why on earth is anyone offering Tony Ferguson, the former interim champion on a ridiculous win streak, a .50 featherweight coming off a win over fucking Artem Lobov.
