Tony Ferguson was very direct in his call-out of Conor McGregor today.
Now that Tony Ferguson has the UFC interim lightweight title around his waist, he has his eyes on one person - Conor McGregor. Ferguson defeated Kevin Lee at UFC 216 via third-round submission, and is intent on unifying the titles. As a guest on The MMA Hour today, he spelled out exactly why he thinks he should get the fight and had some things to say directly to McGregor (via MMA Fighting):
“I mean, if Dana says it, then we’re going to hold it to him. The UFC is pretty good with that, right? They don’t want to be called liars, and I don’t want to make them a liar, so this sh-t needs to happen.”
