UFC President Dana White Says Tony Ferguson Vs Conor McGregor Next

UFC President Dana White has made clear the next Bout for Conor McGregor is Tony Ferguson, saying that the only thing he wants to discuss.

Tony Ferguson in the UFC216 headliner on Saturday made Kevin Lee tap out in the third round winning the interim lightweight title and increasing his winning streak to 10 in the Octagon.

The next fight would Naturally be fixed with Undisputed lightweight champion Conor McGregor VS Tony Ferguson, though McGregor has showed he would love a Nate Diaz III, which has now been over looked by UFC  President Dana White in the UFC 216 post Fight conference.

“Nobody’s talked about Diaz. Diaz has never been talked about. That’s internet bullsh*t,” White said. “Tony’s the interim champion, Conor’s the champion, that’s the fight that makes sense. It’s the fight that has to happen, it doesn’t ‘make sense,’ it’s the fight that has to happen.”

Conor McGregor has always been unpredictable and though White has given predictions on his next fight, the Irishman is known to follow his own paths. Winning the featherweight title with a 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo in December 2015, McGregor followed that triumph with a pair of welterweight bouts vs. Diaz, then win the lightweight belt from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 and after left the UFC for Floyd Mayweather.

Asked if Conor McGregor will fight again this year, White said “Not yet. We didn’t specifically talk about it, but yeah we talked about it kinda,”.

“He wants to fight again this year. He does want to fight again this year so he went and partied in Ibiza for a while, went back home for awhile, you gotta let him blow off some steam and then figure it out.”

Dana White also acknowledged the kind of spectacle a fight like McGregor - Ferguson would bring. “Tony’s a busy guy,” White said. “He keeps coming forward, he keeps throwing all kinds of different things at ya. And Conor’s awesome. There’s no way that’s not a great fight. Impossible.”
