Ferguson calls out McGregor after Vegas win
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”.
