Tony Ferguson Lashes Back at Nate Diaz, Dana White Unsure If Diaz Brothers Will Ever Fight Again
Tony Ferguson lashed back at Nate Diaz, who earlier accused "El Cuycuy" of baiting him into a fight in order to make a name. Both the 33-year-old American and Conor McGregor share the same management team.
However, Ferguson said that Diaz was in the wrong sport if he continues to refuse fighters who call him out. "The next person that beat the dude that's next in line would be Nate. So it had absolutely nothing to do with management," he ranted. "You're a p**sy, don't worry about it. You don't like to fight. You're in the wrong sport. Go try tennis."
At the end of the day, Ferguson said it wouldn't matter which fighter the UFC places in front of him because he will fight anybody, unlike Diaz or Khabib Nurmagomedov or McGregor, whom he all described as a "bunch of bit***s." "This is a man's sport. I fight. I like to have job security. Give me somebody in front of me that wants to have their ass beat. Give me somebody that wants to go in there and test their wit against me," he said.
In terms of ranking, Diaz is below the totem pole in the lightweight division ruled by McGregor. Nurmagomedov is the top contender followed by Ferguson. Nate, meanwhile, is number eight.
Dana White earlier said that he could never figure out the Diaz brothers, who seem to thumb down any match they suggest. He said he's under the impression that Nate and Nick "don't seem like they wanna fight."
Diaz has already received his boxing license from the California commission. He also applied for a boxing license in Las Vegas. "If they want to fight next week or if they never want to fight again, that's up to them. It's not up to me," he told TMZ. "They don't seem like they wanna fight ... either one of them."
