UFC lightweight Conor McGregor has never been one to be lost for words and even when he’s not actively fighting he pays attention to the sport.

On Wednesday at UFC 274 media day UFC lightweight Tony Ferguson went off on a rant against the UFC and specifically Dana White on topics ranging from what he called “UFC Tactics” against him to White saying “F*ck no” to him boxing.

Ferguson described wanting to go do other professional sports, including boxing, and being told no by White. “I want to go do all these couple things, but then I have this guy right here acting like a f*cking drug dealer telling me I can’t go and do this sh*t.”

McGregor has taken to Twitter to express his opinions before and did so on Ferguson’s comments. McGregor, who later deleted the tweet, said on Thursday,

“Tony Ferguson, who changes his representation around 4 times a year, is saying it’s someone else fault he is in the positon he is in. How many bridges do you burn before you look yourself in the mirror and say “maybe it’s me that’s the issue”

God bless you pal, I’ll say a prayer.” @TheNotoriousMMA 

McGregor has had his own share of back-and-forth with Ferguson before when the latter was interim champion and calling for Conor to “defend or vacate”.

Tony Ferguson faces Michael Chandler as the featured bout of UFC 274.

As of this post Ferguson has yet to comment or acknowledge McGregor’s comments, but will have plenty of opportunity to address it at Thursday’s UFC 274 press conference in Phoenix, AZ.
