Twitter, including Conor McGregor's team, reacts to UFC 209's Nurmagomedov-Ferguson interim title bout


The UFC will introduce yet another interim title when lightweight contenders Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson clash in UFC 209’s co-main event on March 4.

After several previous attempts to fight each other fell through, Nurmagomedov (24-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) and Ferguson (22-3 MMA, 12-1 UFC) will fight on pay-per-view at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to determine who gets the first shot at 155-pound titleholder Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC).

Fans and industry insiders haven’t exactly embraced the UFC’s interim belts, and the criticism again boiled over after the fight was announced. For more, check below for the top Twitter reactions to UFC 209’s Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson interim title fight announcement.
