The world of mixed martial arts is a great place for groin-focused trash talk, and Tony Ferguson is taking aim at one of the sport’s biggest stars in Conor McGregor. McGregor has long been a controversial figure, and last year he claimed that he was going to retire in what many viewed as a play for an ownership stake in the UFC. Tony Ferguson, on the other hand, is looking to up his profile after a loss to Justin Gaethje cost him not only the interim Lightweight Title but also ended his 12-fight win streak.
Ferguson is looking to make some waves and find new challengers, and he set his sights on Conor McGregor in a Tweet earlier this week.
