Looks like things are really starting to heat up between UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and interim titleholder Tony Ferguson.
After seeing McGregor post a hilarious “Scarface” tweet yesterday (Fri., Oct. 13, 2017), “El Cucuy” has responded with his own public barb. In one of the more epic montages you’ll ever see, Ferguson tweeted out a video compilation (shown above) paying tribute to the ultra-popular video game “Grand Theft Auto” and ragging on “Notorious” in the process.
Ferguson has been one of the more entertaining characters in the UFC’s crowded lightweight division and he doesn’t disappoint in this instance. The interim champion used “#SnapDownCity” to let McGregor know that he would mop the canvas with him if they ever crossed paths.
If everything goes as planned, assuming Nate Diaz will continue to sit on the bench, Ferguson will be the next UFC star to step inside of the Octagon with McGregor. The two have been on a crash course since “Notorious” moved up to 155 pounds last year and defeated Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to claim the lightweight strap.
These Twitter beefs are already satisfying the masses, but nobody is going to get closure on the 155-pound title scene until McGregor unifies his belt with the one Ferguson won after submitting Kevin Lee at UFC 216 earlier this month.
