Tony Ferguson took to social media on Tuesday and indicated that a planned rematch with Michael Johnson will no longer happen this March.

Johnson was the last fighter to defeat Ferguson, who has worked his way up the UFC’s lightweight division rankings on the heels of a seven-fight win streak.

It didn’t take the former Ultimate Fighter winner long to stir the pot again, though, noting that he has “big news coming soon.”

A report late Tuesday night indicated that Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will be signed. The bout would likely be a No. 1 contender match in the lightweight division.
