The next big UFC installment on tap is UFC 209, which will see Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson rematch for the welterweight belt, while Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson scrap for an interim lightweight strap.
This quartet of mal hombres had a media conference call this week, and, well, it was something. As usual, Thompson was nice and respectful, Woodley had a chip on his shoulder, Ferguson was wondering aloud why he and Nurmy weren’t the main event (which pissed Woodley off), and Nurmagomedov was all about that cold confidence that makes you speculate on how horrid the living conditions must be back home.
Give it a listen. It’s pretty entertaining.
