It was the Tony Ferguson show during the UFC 262 pre-fight press conference.
UFC 262 takes place Saturday night at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The main event will crown a new lightweight champion as Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler battle it out for the vacant title.
The co-main event, meanwhile, sees Ferguson take on Beneil Dariush in what very well might be the people’s main event.
“El Cucuy” was certainly the people’s champion during the pre-fight press conference that took place today as he stole the show entirely.
With the fans in attendance chanting his name throughout, Ferguson began things by interrupting a question about Khabib Nurmagomedov from a reporter.
“He’s a f*cking b*tch, he’s a f*cking p*ssy,” Ferguson said. “Sorry to interrupt you. I’m going to dedicate this f*cking song called ‘Mask Off’ – chase a check, never chase a b*tch. That’s Khabib.”

Ferguson also went at it with Dariush as he took issue with the latter helping train Justin Gaethje for their UFC 249 matchup last year.

Ferguson: Chandler Has ‘Dana White Privilege’
The most iconic line of the conference, however, was when Ferguson interrupted Chandler.
“You f*cking dodged me too, Chandler,” Ferguson said. “You’re a b*tch. … You f*cking said no, man. You got this sh*t handed to you. You got Dana White privilege.”
That led to huge laughter from White and just about everyone else.
