37 things fans can do to ensure Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson finally happens.

The fifth time is the charm. That’s the saying, right?

MMA fans were finally gifted with the confirmation that both UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and former UFC interim champion, Tony Ferguson, have signed their bout agreements and the fight is officially on.

But we’ve been here before, four other times in fact, and now we are a little gun shy. Can you blame us?
