Ferguson has always been unique in his way of life and how he builds up to a fight but his recent behaviour has drawn concerns from his family and some of this attitudes are somewhat unusual for a professional fighter of his standard. However, issues about his mental health were raised during the press conference but was ignored by h and when the champion was asked, he said he wouldn't like to bring Ferguson's personal issues into the build up.
“Nothing personal here, I don’t want to talk about his problems – family stuff, mental stuff. This is his problem,” Nurmagomedov told reporters, including MMA Junkie, at Dominance MMA media day. “I don’t want to talk about his problems. Everybody has problems. Nobody is safe. If he need help we have to help him, but we’re going to fight next month. I don’t want to think about my opponent and talk about his mental health.”
