Ferguson, who is coming off a decisive win over Kevin Lee last month at UFC 216, responded to a recent Twitter post made by Nurmagomedov.

The two were expected to fight most recently at UFC 209 but Nurmagomedov pulled out after falling ill prior to weighing in. It marked the third time the fight has been canceled between the two.
Nurmagomedov is scheduled to meet Edson Barboza at UFC 219 in December.
