Midnight Mania! Khabib Was Unmotivated Until ‘Worthy’ Ferguson

MMA news

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

The idea of Khabib Nurmagomedov being unmotivated is bizarre. If one looks past the little details for a minute, the Dagestani mauler does precisely the same thing to almost all of his elite opponents: dominate them. Yet according to “The Eagle” himself (translated by Twitter account MMARusTwitter, an account which dedicates itself to translating Russian MMA content), he hasn’t felt much spark until this upcoming title defense opposite Tony Ferguson.

Once again, it’s almost a thought experiment to try to consider Nurmagomedov unmotivated while thinking of his vicious beating of Edson Barboza. On a more personal level, Nurmagomedov seemed plenty motivated to pummel Conor McGregor as he stood over him and showered him with punches and trash talk alike.

Yet, Nurmagomedov says “El Cucuy” is different, and who are we to argue?
