UFC Commentator Joe Rogan talked about how special of a fighter Ferguson is and what makes him Nurmagomedov’s toughest test yet on his JRE Podcast.

“Tony is the boogeyman. That nickname, ‘El Cucuy,’ that’s the perfect nickname for that guy, he is terrifying,” Rogan said. “He never gets tired, everybody who fights him looks like they fell off a train, it’s crazy. I think Khabib vs. Tony is the toughest fight of Khabib’s career. I think Tony Ferguson is the scariest guy for anybody at 155 pounds to fight. He doesn’t get tired and has f—ing bricks for hands. I had Josh Thomson in here the other day and he was saying that when Tony Ferguson grabs him, you can’t believe how big his hands are.”

Ferguson is on a 12-fight win streak at 155 pounds. Nurmagomedov is 28-0 and 12-0 in the UFC. He is coming off a dominant win via submission over former lightweight champion Dustin Poirier this past September. “It’s impossible to predict a fight,” Nurmagomedov told EssentiallySports.com. “What direction it will go in and how he will do it. I never worried about an opponent’s action- what he will do and how he will do it. I always study an opponent’s strengths and try to deflect them when I get in the cage.”

Rogan further discussed Ferguson’s abilities and said, “He’s a spooky dude. There’s something about him, like, he ain’t normal. He’s not a normal guy. He’s eccentric but in the good way, especially when it comes to being a fighter. The two of them together, it’s an epic fight. But I would not be making any plans if I was Dana or if I was anybody else. I would not be making any plans, because Khabib can win that fight, but it’s not guaranteed. Ferguson can win that fight, too.”
