Tony Ferguson has some ‘unfinished business’ to settle with Conor McGregor, per a recent Tweet by ‘El Cucuy’.

Ferguson, who used to be colleagues with McGregor at Paradigm Sports, called out ‘McNuggets’ on Thursday.

“Unfinished business”.

“Where You At Mcnuggets!?!” Time -2- TurtleUp MF’s Glad Moast Of You Got The Memo -CSO- Crew On -2- One. -Champ”.

Ferguson claims Paradigm Sports prevented him from fighting McGregor in the past and insinuated that ‘The Notorious’ is the one calling the shots over there. Ferguson left Paradigm to sign with Ballengee Group in April 2019.

The 37-year-old hasn’t fought since his crushing decision loss to Beneil Dariush at UFC 262 this past May, which marked his third straight. Despite Ferguson’s top-ten ranking at 155-pounds, some fans have called for The Ultimate Fighter 13 winner to retire given the lopsided nature of his last three defeats.

McGregor, 33, is currently sidelined due to a broken leg suffered in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. The Irishman lost the fight via first-round TKO (doctor’s stoppage).
