After UFC 249, it could be time to finally accept we are never going to see Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson.
It has now been scheduled and cancelled FIVE times, but it seems like this time could end any hopes of that fight one day happening.
Why you ask? Well, sadly for fight fans, UFC 249 went ahead this weekend and Ferguson lost to Justin Gaethje after being dismantled and bullied for the entirety of the fight.
Ferguson, who was the heavy favourite heading into fight night, simply didn't get going, and round after round he was getting punished by the supposed underdog.
Eventually, in the fifth and final round, Herb Dean made the correct decision in waving off the fight, stepping in after Gaethje landed a stiff jab to the race of Ferguson. It was very clear the interim champ could no longer defend himself.
With that, the hopes and dreams of a Khabib vs Ferguson fight now look all-but over. How does Ferguson get back on track to secure a fight with the Russian champ?
Due to injuries, failed weight cuts and now coronavirus, this fight is just not destined to happen. For one reason or another, the universe doesn't want to see Khabib and Ferguson in the cage together, and this time, it could be the final time.
Since Gaethje's shock win, UFC fans have been all over Twitter making comments about the fact we're never going to see the long-awaited fight between the Russian and American, but one fan has gone even further.
Posted on Reddit, a fan created a brilliant tribute to the fact we've lost the chances of an incredible fight.
The tribute shows clips of the two fighters, but the chosen music in the background suits it perfectly.
Dust In The Wind by Kansas brilliantly sums up the mood and the tone of the video, as we all come to accept the fact we may never see Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson.
As the song says, 'I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone.'
It truly does feel like the moment has gone.
