31-year-old American MMA fighter Justin Geydzhi commented on the victory over 36-year-old American Tony Ferguson in the tournament UFC 249.
“Both times I lost, because that would be too smug, I was having too much fun. But at this level it is impossible to do. I fight with the best in the world. Now the best in the world is Habib. I am four years preparing for such challenges. And I’m happy to represent the United States of America against Dagestani, the best Russian fighter. His record was 28-0. And now it’s the only challenge I’m interested in.
When the referee stopped the fight… I sympathize with Ferguson, because in his place I would be wildly angry. I go out to fight to the death. I was ready to die today,” said Geydzhi after the fight.
