Tony Ferguson hasn’t been fighting since UFC 229 because of mental issues. His wife filed a restraining order on him because she was worried for his safety.
“Tony Ferguson is a good husband and good father to our son. The current legal proceedings are part of a process to ensure that Tony will receive the help necessary to continue being the best possible husband and father, as well as to pursue his passion and career as a UFC champion fighter.”
Tony Ferguson recently had a meeting with Dana White and he’s medically cleared to fight. Dana White recently had a meeting with Conor McGregor in Las Vegas. Wondering if Conor vs Tony is a fight that will happen, Dana setting this up for a huge main event in Las Vegas.
Fight makes sense as Conor hasn’t fought since UFC 229 as well because of suspensions, Getting arrested and running his proper whiskey business. Both Conor and Tony occasionally trash talk to each other on twitter, Tony calling Conor “McNugget.”
Khabib vs Poirier is happening in September, UFC 242 in Dubai. In October that’s when Conor Vs Tony will happen or maybe will happen. Gives Conor and Tony enough time to promote the fight and train. The winner of Conor vs Tony faces the winner of Khabib vs Poirier. It’s a 4 fighter tournament without being declared one.
Helps the Lightweight Division out as it’s in chaos right now and maybe these 4 fights will help the Lightweight Division. Understanding where Conor is at right now, How many fights does he TRULY have and is Tony medically healthy!!
Overall hope Tony vs Conor will happen because it’s a fight lots of mma fans have been waiting for and without a doubt will be a fun fight to watch.
