Tony Ferguson calls Conor McGregor his ‘b-tch’, McGregor issues scathing response

New, comments

Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor get into a back-and-forth on Twitter.

Tony Ferguson didn’t take kindly to Conor McGregor’s recent comments about his ‘embarrassing’ performance at UFC 249, which saw Ferguson suffer a fifth-round TKO loss to newly-crowned interim lightweight champion, Justin Gaethje.

“I love Tony. We represented him amazingly at Paradigm sports and were betrayed for a promise of a baseball contract. But frame and preparation here was just embarrassing. His methods and conversation are humorous/enjoyable but he was never the level perceived. Although tough,” McGregor said of his former colleague.

Ferguson responded by calling McGregor his ‘b-tch’ and advised ‘The Notorious’ to ‘put down the bottle’, insinuating that McGregor has a drinking-while-on-twitter problem.

“@TheNotoriousMMA You’re Still My Bitch. You Never Represented Me According To Audie,.. If So Then You Worked For Me, & Withheld Money From Me. Focus On Putting The Bottle Down Kid. @BallengeeGroup Is Gold Standard, Must Be Hard Watching From The Sidelines. Keep It Up Chump -Champ.”

That’s when McGregor issued this scathing response, labelling ‘El Cucuy’ a ‘f-cking buffoon’ and urging the former interim UFC lightweight champ to take some boxing lessons to avoid making a fool of himself in the future.

“Shut up and thank the nurses and doctors that plated back up your skull and stitched all those gashes up. It’s international nurses day! And learn how to box! Fumbling over your feet like a f-cking Buffoon. We’d be embarrassed to represent that at Paradigm Sports. GPizzle.”

McGregor last fought at UFC 246, where he scored a 40-second TKO victory over Donald Cerrone in a headlining welterweight bout. The former two-division champ has since called for title fight with Gaethje, but ‘The Highlight’ appears to have given McGregor the silent treatment.
