Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping defended Khabib Nurmagomedov after a recent scrutiny from Tony Ferguson.
“Oh, Habib’s record … Fact: More than half of Fathead’s professional fights were only two licensed matches. All before the UFC. To be a professional fight in most leagues, You need three licensed rounds to be considered a professional. Fight such a league [as] UFC & Farm League. In that case, the 3×2 round TUF (Ultimate Fighter) fight should rely on my record. Give my record three more knockouts and wins. “ – Tony Ferguson wrote.
Michael Bisping responded to Tony Ferguson’s claim in a recent “Believe You Me” podcast ( LowKickMMA).
“Check the records-Pro Boxing records-I don’t know, I don’t know what it looks like, Floyd Mayweather,” Bisping told podcast co-host Luis J. Gomez. “Let’s go, okay. Just as Habib (Nurmagomedov) is considered the best ever, compare him because he is considered the best ever. Sure, you comedy When he started, Lewis (J. Gomez) was doing comedy in the basement and kitchen at cafes such as New Year’s Eve. That was you. “
Michael Bisping continued:
“What I mean is what you build, you build to that (level). When I started the UFC, or, sorry, it was a professional MMA, but I fought. The guys weren’t very good at it. You pave the way and fight the best guys when you reach that level. Then you shouldn’t fight the good guys. “
Bisping then concluded that Tony Ferguson’s claim was “no logic.”
“And because he came to the UFC and remained undefeated-that is, I love Tony (Ferguson), but there’s no logic there. Well, he’s fighting the best people before the UFC. Didn’t. Well, whatever feelings you want are fair enough. When he arrived at the UFC, he remained undefeated and fought a great competition. He (Dustin) Poirier, (Connor) Defeated McGregor, (Justin) Gaethje — There were a lot of people who couldn’t think from the top of their heads, and he beat them all. So it shouldn’t matter what he did before the UFC. “
