Fer­gu­son calls out McGre­gor af­ter Ve­gas win

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Sports -

UFC pres­i­dent Dana White says Conor McGre­gor in­tends to re­turn to the Oc­tagon by the end of the year with Tony Fer­gu­son call­ing out the Ir­ish fighter af­ter land­ing the in­terim light­weight belt in Las Ve­gas on Satur­day night.

At the post-fight press con­fer­ence White was asked if he had spo­ken to McGre­gor about his future plans and con­firmed he had.

“He wants to fight again this year,” said White. “He went and par­tied in Ibiza for a while, he went back home for a while and you’ve got to let him blow off some steam and we’ll fig­ure it out.”

Fer­gu­son de­feated Kevin Lee with a third-round tri­an­gle choke sub­mis­sion at the T-Mo­bile Arena and af­ter­wards claimed the Ir­ish­man is “scared”.
