Former interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson has reached out to Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler, who are currently filming the next season of The Ultimate Fighter as rival coaches.

“Good luck to both of you, stupid McNuggets and halfwit Chandler!” Ferguson wrote on the social network. “I hope you knock each other out after the season. Teach the boys good things and behave accordingly, gentlemen. Have fun!

The McGregor-Chandler coaching bout has yet to be officially announced, but UFC President Dana White has already said the bout will take place at lightweight, meaning the Irishman could get a title shot if he beats the American.

According to rumors, the confrontation between McGregor and Chandler in September will lead the numbered event of the strongest league in the world.

As for Tony Ferguson, he suffered his fifth loss in a row last September, losing by guillotine choke to Nate Diaz, and at the moment has no scheduled fight.
