Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Tony Ferguson is trying to salvage what’s left of his UFC career with a recent move up to welterweight, but former rival Khabib Nurmagomedov thinks time is already up on ‘El Cucuy’.
Ferguson, who has lost his last four fights in the lightweight division, moved up to welterweight at UFC 279 last September. “El Cucuy” ended up fighting Nate Diaz in the main event and lost by fourth-round submission. The loss extended Ferguson’s current losing streak to five, which is by far a career worst.
Nurmagomedov, who is a former UFC lightweight champion and current UFC Hall of Famer, isn’t Ferguson’s biggest fan. The two were supposed to fight five times, but it never materialized for one reason or another. So when asked about Ferguson’s current woes inside the Octagon, Khabib wasted no time putting ‘El Cucuy’ on the line.
“His time is up and there is no way to get it back,” Nurmagomedov told UFC Russia. “Not Khabib, not Tony, nobody. We’ve had our time, and he’s gone. He’s still fighting. He needs the money. You have to pay your bills in the United States, and I’m sure because he’s from California, I know all the fighters from California – whatever he’s won, take half of that. I think he’s still fighting for money to pay the bills, taxes. He’s got a family, I think he has two children. I don’t blame him, but you can’t go back. When your time runs out, he doesn’t ask your name.
Looks like England could have the trilogy!

As someone who has a seven year old daughter and another granddaughter on the way, I think this is a must. Thoughts?
Why does this exist? Do we really need semi-trailers that go that fast?
