This news has also turned heads, as it potentially opens the door to a fight with Conor McGregor. Paradigm also represents McGregor. Sharing the same management, it has been speculated, is part of the reason the two have fought.
Paradigm does not appear to hold any ill will towards Ferguson. CEO and President, Audie Attar spoke to ESPN about the split. In the statement, he was very professional.
“Tony Ferguson is a talented athlete, and we hope his future brings him personal happiness both in and out of the Octagon.”
This is coming off the back of a tough time for Ferguson. Several apparent changes are being made in his life. It was recently announced that Feguson’s wife, Christina dropped the restraining order placed against the former interim champ. He has also allegedly passed a recent psychological exam. All steps in the right direction for “El Cucuy.”
Tony Ferguson recently suggested that he was offered a fight with McGregor. So whether that is the fight to make or not, we are all looking forward to seeing him back and healthy.
