While the relationship between Conor McGregor and the UFC hasn’t always been the smoothest, “The Notorious” doesn’t seem to be on the same side as Tony Ferguson.
On Wednesday, Ferguson made headlines during his UFC 274 media day appearance ahead of his upcoming lightweight matchup with Michael Chandler. “El Cucuy” took the opportunity to air his grievances towards the UFC, and promotional president Dana White, even comparing them to “drug dealers” in certain ways.
McGregor posted his thoughts on Ferguson’s remarks on social media the next day.
Tony Ferguson, who changes representation around 4 times a year, is saying it’s someone else fault he is in the position he is in. What number of bridges have you burned before you admit that it is me? God Bless you, pal. I will say a prayer.

“Tony Ferguson, who changes representation around four times a year, is saying it’s someone [else’s] fault he is in the position he is in,” McGregor stated. How many bridges have you destroyed before you looked in the mirror to say that maybe it is me? God Bless you pal. I will say a prayer .”
At one point, McGregor and Ferguson were under the same management umbrella. However, the former is now gone.
McGregor will likely be keeping a close eye on Saturday’s card at the Footprint Center in Phoenix due to the fight between Ferguson and Chandler, as well as the main event for the 155-pound title between Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje.
