Former UFC double champion, Conor McGregor, still expects to settle a long-standing conflict in the cage with Tony Ferguson, with whom he has managed to exchange many mutual threats and insults over the years.
The Irishman said this while commenting on the American, who has made it clear that he has no intention of retiring, and intends to put his career back on a successful track after six consecutive defeats.
“I’m going to finish you, and I’m going to do it tough,” McGregor wrote, referring to Ferguson.
A day earlier, Conor McGregor informed fans that he would not be able to fight Michael Chandler in December because the Nevada State Athletic Commission required him to return to the American Anti-Doping Agency’s testing pool and undergo a full doping test. The 35-year-old Irishman last stepped into the octagon in July 2021, suffering a severe leg fracture in the final match of his trilogy against Dustin Puryear.
Tony Ferguson, 39, suffered his sixth straight defeat late last month, losing by arm-triangle choke in the third round to fellow countryman Bobby Green.
