“I like blue panties,” Ferguson said. “He’s not gonna defend or vacate, he’s gonna have to fight me. There’s no insider information. He’s never spoken my name. I’m one of the most ruthless vatos out there. This guy, he doesn’t want a part of me. I’m not aiming at him. I don’t give two f--ks.”
McGregor’s camp is currently aiming for a third fight against Nate Diaz, ideally for St. Patrick’s Day of the coming year. Ferguson already has a problem with this idea, because for him, it is McGregor’s way of avoiding a fight against the best in the division.
“I don’t want to fight someone who doesn’t want to fight me or compete against some of the best,” Ferguson said. “When you’re saying, ‘I’ll fight anybody, anytime.’ You’re f--king full of shit. For me, I’ve been fighting anybody, any time, any weight – straight up.”
Ferguson will be headlining UFC 216 on Saturday in Las Vegas alongside Kevin Lee, as they fight for the UFC interim lightweight title.
