Conor McGregor Giggles, Pats Tony Ferguson On His Big Dumb Head, And Sends Him On His Merry Way Upon Getting Called Out
After Tony Ferguson, potentially the most blockheaded, annoying, and overall infuriating fighter on the UFC roster (save for Colby Covington) turned down a recent fight offer with Max Holloway for the UFC Interim Lightweight Championship, he threw out a couple potential reasons at to why.
1. Tony can make Featherweight.
I feel like this potentially means he’s just frustrated with the messy Lightweight Division situation/being stripped of his interim championship for no reason and having no desire to fight for another interim championship for, again – no reason, so he’s saying fuck it, maybe I’m just done with the division as a whole. Stupid, and not well thought out at all, being Max Holloway, the Featherweight Champion, is coming up a weight class here, but we don’t have enough time to even get into that right now.
2. Tony’s injured.
This one makes the most sense, as it’s really the only reason to turn down a massive pay-per-view main event fight against a UFC Champion attempting “Champ Champ” status.
You see this? You hear this?
Tony, I hope I’m not breaking any news to ya here, but Conor is not fighting you. Why would Conor fight you? It’s literally a done deal that he’s fighting Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in his return to the octagon this Summer. It’s the fight to make, it’s the fight everybody wants them to make, and fans are literally frothing at the mouth for it.
Sure, some hardcore UFC fans would probably like to see Ferguson vs McGregor from a purely in-cage fighting standpoint, but it’s certainly not a very interesting fight at the moment by any means.
Conor did what he does best, upon receiving the call out today, and just shut it down by petting Tony on his big dumb head and sending him on his merry way. In your dreams, pal. He just wished him well during his recovery (if he’s even injured) and reminded him that he’s repped by McGregor/Audie Attar’s management company, Paradigm Sports Management, which I took as “watch your fookin’ mouth or we’ll drop you”.
P.S. Tony, please stop with the “McNuggets” nickname. If it wasn’t funny the first time you said it, it sure as fuck won’t be ain’t funnier the fourteenth.
