Tony Ferguson launches grenades at Khabib again. ‘I’m the champ, chump’

launches-grenades-Khabib-champ-chump

You don’t really hear someone called a ‘chump’ too often anymore unless you are watching old Rocky movies. Apparently, you also hear it when Tony Ferguson sends out seething tweets in the direction of Khabib Nurmagomedov. Ferg is campaigning for the fight again and going on social media to do so. Tony seemingly does not … Read moreTony Ferguson launches grenades at Khabib again. ‘I’m the champ, chump’

Dana White: “I think Tony Ferguson deserves the next shot”

dana-white-think-tony-ferguson-deserves-next-shot

Just because Dana White thinks somebody deserves something, it doesn’t necessarily mean they will get it. He did come out today and say, “I think Tony Ferguson deserves the next shot”. As a fight fan, I tend to agree. As we know, in MMA, deserving a shot is only tangible if it makes sense, financially.

Dana brought up a good point about how neither Conor McGregor nor Tony Ferguson ever lost their lightweight titles. However, Conor got his chance and failed to get it done. Dana thinks it’s only fair that Ferguson gets the next crack at the strap.

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson were supposed to fight four times prior, but happenstance and injuries foiled their plan. After the last fight cancellation between the two, White seemed to be done trying to make that fight happen. He has since come around and it looks like Tony will get a fifth crack at Khabib and a second chance at gold.

Please, no one say hello to Tony until after the fight. No more freak accidents!

Now, the UFC boss, Dana White, is partaking in the festivities.

Tony Ferguson destroys heavybag to DMX while sporting a bandana

tony-ferguson-destroys-heavybag-dmx-bandana

Hey Tony, the 90’s called and asked for their look back. It’s not every day that you see a top mixed martial artist wearing a bandana and sunglasses while kicking the stuffing out of a heavybag to DMX. But, this is Tony Ferguson that we are talking about and I wouldn’t expect anything less.

Ferguson kicked the shit out of the bag like he was a 15-year-old girl celebrating her Quinceanera with a pinata smashing. While it may just seem like a video about punching bag abuse, it’s really just Tony showing off his surgically repaired knee.

He’s on his way back to the top and his next fight can only be a title fight against McGregor, Nurmagomedov, or Poirier.

PS, remind me never to get a Venum heavybag.

Tony Ferguson posts vomiting vid. So, you want to be an Ultimate Fighter?

tony-ferguson-vomiting-ultimate-fighter

Tony Ferguson took to Twitter and gave fans a really close look at what sacrifice and hard work look like. While it may just seem like a video that shows Ferguson vomiting buckets, it certainly has a message accompanying it. Ferguson even goes so far as to address the fans, post-puking.

“You f*****g want to be a fighter, huh? You pussies don’t know shit.”

The meaning behind what he said should be obvious. While haters and trolls sit online and criticize pro fighters, Ferguson shows what exactly fighters go through to become great. He is saying that the sport of MMA isn’t for everyone, despite how cocksure people can be.

Even in the responses to his post, some people still don’t seem to get it.

These guys work SO hard.

LOL. The video that Khabib was laughing at on UFC Embedded

lol-video-khabib-laughing-ufc-embedded

In UFC’s 223 Embedded episode, Khabib Nurmagomedov was in the car watching a video and heartily laughing. It turns out that it’s our old friend Mojahed Fudailat’s video that had him in stitches.

As per usual, Fudailat uses his animation and humor, combined with actual soundbites, to bring his vids to life. The result is Tony Ferguson injuring himself by kicking a steel bar and Khabib not being very happy about it.

Conor McGregor makes an appearance but quickly runs away with a Burger King mask. Even ‘Tiramisu’ shows up in the video, which is more than we can say for Tyron Woodley and a cell phone. If you’ve seen Mojahed’s videos, you know what we mean.

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway cutting weight together

Cutting Weight

Business is business and both fighters were on the treadmill cutting weight together.

It’s been a crazy 24 hours. Tony Ferguson seemingly tripped and injured his knee, forcing him out of the cursed Lightweight title fight with Nurmagomedov. Max Holloway, the Featherweight champion stepped up and said he’d take the fight. That kid has chutzpah. Well, he’s got quite a cut to make before he steps on the scale Friday. So he’s busy cutting weight.

Word around the campfire is that Max’ camp wanted the fight at Welterweight, but the UFC wanted the Lightweight title on the line. So Max is dedicated to making the cut. Towards that goal, he was in the hotel gym on the treadmill. Only two treadmills away were his opponent Saturday night, Khabib Numragomedov.

Dana White is completely over Ferguson and Khabib in every way possible

dana-completely-ferguson-khabib-possible

“Hell no. I’m not making that fight again. Ever.” Those were the last words that Dana White said in his interview with ESPN in regards to Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson. While anything is possible, It sounds like Dana has joined the fans in discontinuing being emotionally invested in that fight.

It really was the fight that every MMA fan has been looking forward to. However, it has been four times that this fight has been made and fallen through. At some point, you just have to give up because the emotional rollercoaster is bad for our blood pressure.

Aside from being done with even thinking about Tony vs Khabib again, Dana stated that the fight between Max Holloway and Khabib Nurmagomedov will be for the actual lightweight championship. In other words, Tony loses his interim title and Conor loses his never-defended-and-only-kept-for-marketing-purposes belt. Ferguson was on the MMA Hour today and seemed hurt that his title would be stripped away because he was injured doing PR stuff for the UFC.

In all my years in MMA, I can’t remember anything as bizarre as this has been between two fighters.
