After months of discussion, Tony Ferguson has seemingly confirmed a bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The No. 2-ranked lightweight issued a tweet on Tuesday in which he said that he will see Nurmagomedov on March 4 at UFC 209 in Las Vegas.

Ferguson and Nurmagomedov have been feuding for the better part of the last 12 months. The two were originally booked to fight in December 2015, but Nurmagomedov was forced out of that meeting with an injury. They were rescheduled for April the following year, only to see their fight canceled again when Ferguson was removed due a problem with his lungs.

A third meeting between the two has been in limbo, with Nurmagomedov recently claiming to have moved on from Fer

While they've been unable to face each other in the Octagon, both lightweight contenders are on enormously successful runs. Nurmagomedov is undefeated in 24 professional contests including eight UFC appearances, and Ferguson has won his past nine fights.

The bout at UFC 209 is rumored to be for an interim lightweight title with divisional champion Conor McGregor expected to be out until May. In the main event, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will defend his title in a rematch against Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson.
