I've heard that Edson Barboza is the possible replacement to fight Ferguson, but there has been no confirmation yet.

Man, does this suck. Was really looking forward to this fight and not only because I'm attending the event. It was one of my favorite fights taking place that entire week

That is a shame, hopefully he can get back in to something early 2015.

Man I was so looking forward to this match up. Ferguson is looking killer everywhere especially on the ground.

If he doesn't fight before 2016 I hope they drop him lower in the rankings...no reason to just fill a top ten spot with someone who doesn't fight.

I wonder if he'll be less obnoxious on Twitter (probably not)

Shitty

I hope this doesn't turn into a Dominick Cruz type of situation. He's already been out a year and a half before this injury.

in my previous comments I am not trying to discredit the guy at all...but I also removed Cruz from my rankings while he was healing as well. I should word things better because even though I am not a fan I recognize and respect his skills and potential.One fight in 2 years is just not active enough (regardless of the reason) for me to justify a ranking in the top ten.

As soon as I saw a title with "khabib" I didn't have to read any farther.
