Khabib Nurmagomedov believes that financial gain is Tony Ferguson’s primary incentive for continuing to fight.
“His time is up, and there’s no way to get it back,” Nurmagomedov said.
“Not Khabib, not Tony, nobody. We had our time, and it passed. He continues to fight. He needs money. You have to pay your bills in the U.S., and I’m sure that since he’s a Californian, I know all the Californian fighters – everything he earned, take half of that. I think he keeps fighting for money to pay bills, taxes. He has a family, I think he has two kids. I don’t blame him, but you can’t get back time. When your time goes away it doesn’t ask your name.”
