Tony Ferguson recently speaking to MMAJunkie radio and said:
“What (McGregor) needs to do is defend or vacate,” he said. “That dude’s got like less than a month. I mean compared to what UFC rules state, he’s got a year to start defending his belt. I’m more then ready for December. He said he wants to fight in 2017. I think the fans deserve it. I think I deserve it.”
