The former interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson is known for his entertaining skills inside the octagon, however, he never shies to slam other fighters on social media. However, this time, Ferguson went a step ahead and lashed out at UFC president Dana White and threatened a class action lawsuit against him.
Ferguson also took a jibe at his rival, the former lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and his manager Ali Abdelaziz. Both were expected to face off in the octagon but that didn’t happen as Khabib announced his retirement in 2020.
“It’s gonna take a class action lawsuit to let some these so called untouchables get a taste of their own medicine *mack*. If this f***er treated his lady in public like that, how do you think he treats his fighters underneath #askme @DisneyStudios @danawhite @ufc TUF Chanp”
“Your still my bitch @TeamKhabib @AliAbdelaziz00 You c*nts owe me over a half a mil now. I’ll take it off your heads like a haircut as you did business wrong w: me. Nuh uh uhhh… Daddy don’t forget,.. Check it out, I’m a tracker taught by my pops. Never like to kill. But for you.”
I should have kept it standing: Ferguson on his loss against Nate diaz
Popularly known as ‘El Cucuy’, Ferguson, was last seen in action against Nate Diaz at UFC 279. Diaz submitted him with a guillotine choke in the fourth round. Both were giving tough competition to each other, however, it was Ferguson’s takedown that made him submit and turned out to be his biggest mistake in the fight, and talked about it in the post-fight conference.
“I should have kept it standing, Period. Got to discuss somethings with my cornermen. Nothing bad. Nobody’s getting fired, nobody’s doing f****** bad. It’s just some adjustments, it’s a new game for me, mixing it up, and putting the MMA together. My [originally scheduled opponent], Li [Jingliang], was a right-hander. If I would have went for the takedown [against Li] it would have been more difficult for him to do that kind of stuff, but Nate, he prepared for Khamzat [Chimaev]. You saw Khamzat when he took down Kevin Holland. He went and took him out on the right side, it was a right-handed opponent, it was on his lead jab. He went straight, put him down.”
