Tony Ferguson Sends Conor McGregor A Not So Happy Holiday Message
Tony Ferguson is putting coal in the stocking of UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor as a present ahead of the holidays.
The interim 155-pound champion has been calling for a fight with McGregor ever since winning the belt back in October.
Add to that, Ferguson has been adamant that if McGregor isn’t willing to fight him, that he should vacate the title so the lightweight division can move forward with a champion willing to face the top contenders.
Ferguson dropped another message aimed at McGregor ahead of the holidays just to be sure he’s been listening.

Ferguson is currently recovering from elbow surgery to clean up some damage that will keep him out of action until around March 2018.
There’s still no exact word on when McGregor will be ready to return. The 29-year old UFC champion hasn’t fought inside the Octagon since November 2016 while focusing most of this year on his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.
Since that time, McGregor has been engaged in negotiations with the UFC on a new contract but the two sides have not come to an agreement yet.
