Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Conor McGregor has had essentially the most high lightweights at one time or one other. Nevertheless, McGregor appears to have a very private dislike for Tony Ferguson, who will face Michael Chandler this weekend (Might 7, 2022) at UFC 274. Along with their standing as potential enemies within the Octagon, all of it appears to stem from Ferguson’s departure from Paradigm Sports activities, the corporate McGregor runs.
Efficiency-enhancing drug (PEDs) allegations of “El Cucuy” most likely aren’t serving to both.
In any case, McGregor is unimpressed by Ferguson’s latest rant on the UFC 274 media day, during which Ferguson labeled UFC and Dana White as “drug sellers” and suggested different fighters to train warning in negotiations. McGregor believes the issue is with Ferguson himself, not the UFC, and he stated the identical factor in a tweet that has since been deleted.
“Tony Ferguson, who adjustments illustration about 4 occasions a yr, says it is another person that places him within the place he is in,” wrote McGregor (by way of MMAFighting). “What number of bridges do you burn earlier than you look your self within the mirror and say ‘perhaps it is me,’ God bless your good friend, I will say a prayer.”
Until he is actually dedicated to his potential welterweight plans, McGregor could be clever to control UFC 274. Attributable to his stardom, he might discover himself within the title combine at any level towards Charles Oliveira or Justin Gaethje, and the victor of Chandler vs. Ferguson could be a really affordable match for his return from damage.
It stays to be seen how the 155-pound division shakes out after this weekend.
