Tony Ferguson has finally reacted to his recent online beef with both Conor McGregor and Daniel Cormier.
Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor back at it
Over the past week, Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor have once again began jawing off at one another. It all started on fight week leading up to UFC 274. Ferguson criticized the UFC promotion and president Dana White. This led to some comments from McGregor, who took aim at “El Cucuy” for his comments.
Things got worst after Ferguson’s second-round knockout loss to Michael Chandler at UFC 274. McGregor began to poke fun at Ferguson for the loss with some memes on Twitter. Speaking to Submission Radio, Ferguson finally got to comment on his beef with the Irishman. Apparently, things are so bad that they could be taking their fight to the courtroom soon.
“Well, I’m going to be real. There was a lot of underscored things that were going on between the UFC and Paradigm. They obviously had like a lot of insider information that they were sharing between each other.
“Even Dana said they fucked me over, and, we’re going to be going through some legal things, which is kind of crazy, and I can’t talk too much about it, but there’s a Miller-Ayala act, which says that an agent, an acting agent is not supposed to compete in the same sport as the person that you’re representing.
“And I would ask my management all the time if he [Conor McGregor] was an owner of the company, and they kept straight out lying to me every single time. They lied to me a lot. And I’m not trying to do anything else besidestell the truth on my part. But I would ask it, and it would bug the shit out of me.
“Cause I kind of knew that that was just like, what the fuck? Everybody has told me that he [Conor McGregor] is [part owner of Paradigm Sports Management], but he isn’t. But there was a reason why he didn’t fight for the belt. Cause one, it would have probably been illegal. I want to be real.
“Cause one, he probably wasn’t supposed to be in the same sport as me or in the same weight class. So, there’s a lot of things that are going to go on, and there’s going to be some people called into court and just, I’m going to be real, there’s a lot of things going on.”
Tony Ferguson hits out at Daniel Cormier
Conor McGregor wasn’t the only fighter Ferguson had beef with during UFC 274 fight week. In the midst of Charles Oliveira’s weight miss, Ferguson shared a picture of Daniel Cormier’s old “towel-gate” weigh-in from years ago, using it as an example of “how not to make weight.”
This sparked a back-and-forth between the two former champions on Twitter. During the verbal warfare, Ferguson made a comment that suggested as if he was accusing Cormier of using cocaine. Ferguson called those comments all “hype.”
“It’s called hype, it’s called hype. Yay. It’s hype. When you’re talking about hype, what I like to do is I like to throw a lot of things out there, and what people do is they put out what they think about it.
“They’re called riddles. Half of the time when people put out riddles, what do you think happens? People don’t know what I talk about on Instagram or Twitter. The’re lke ‘what is he using all these emojis for?’ I get messages from people all over the world, and sometimes people don’t know what I’m talking about because it’s not for them. It’s for that person in particular.”
