Tony Ferguson has finally fired back at Conor McGregor’s recent jokes about his UFC 274 knockout loss to Michael Chandler.
Tony Ferguson fires back
For years, Tony Ferguson has dubbed Conor McGregor as “McNugget” in his attempts to lure the Irishman into a fight. However, in the several years they’ve shared the lightweight division, the fight has never materialized.
This past weekend, after Ferguson was knocked out by Michael Chandler, McGregor took to social media, photoshopping McDonalds McNuggets onto Tony Ferguson’s face in the photo of him getting knocked out. There were several Tweets made by McGregor, and Ferguson has finally offered up a response.
“Tony had some great nuggets in the media build up. Then he got punt kicked to the chin and got turned into a nugget himself. That’s crazy.
“If you pulled that out of a McDonald’s bag you’d dip it in sauce and eat without a moments thought. No doubt. That would pass as a legit @McDonalds chicken nugget.
Ferguson Tweeted out the following:
“Ahhh There’s my bitch. Next time tag me pussy. Comin’ after you & ur crew. McNugget stays with you fake, can’t take what not your ya anymore thief. Still got no sauce & no balls McNuggets. I’ll see you & your crew soon comin after your gold leprechaun-Champ aka El Savvy -CSO- 🖕”

Prior to UFC 274, Ferguson voiced his frustrations with the promotion and UFC president Dana White. This sparked a response from McGregor, who didn’t appreciate Ferguson speaking out against the promotion.
McGregor is currently preparing to make his return to the Octagon after breaking his leg last time out against Dustin Poirier. Early speculation suggests the Irishman could be back inside the cage as early as later this year. With the lightweight division as competitive as ever, perhaps McGregor could be sharing the Octagon with Ferguson upon his return.
Of course, McGregor has been talking a lot about jumping up to 170 pounds and challenging Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title. Regardless of who McGregor fights next, one thing is for sure, everyone will be watching.
