“Khabib is the number one contender, and Conor is sitting out of this,” Lee told BJPenn.com. “I do not know. I like the fight (Ferguson vs Nurmagomedov). I think it’s a more interesting fight and people will give credit. I do not know. I think Tony will be better, and he will be able to get past Khabib, and then he will go out and destroy Conor (McGregor), and I think I will be able to climb in some way or another. ”
Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will meet again on April 7 in Brooklyn, as part of UFC 223.
