Tony Ferguson : ‘Bro, We’re Not Friends’


Former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson appears to be agitated about not fighting Dustin Poirier at UFC 254 on October 24

“I’m going to be real,” Ferguson told ESPN (transcribed by MMA Junkie). “I don’t know what their plans were before or after, but I was already ready. I was already counting on it. Seriously, I planned around it. I’m not much of a planner, so I was already going ahead of it, but then Dana wanted to speak for me. He wanted to go out there and be like, ‘Tony is going to take this fight.’ Like, bro, we’re not friends. I never said we were friends.”

“It’s just business, right? I’m there when you need me, and then obviously when you don’t,” Ferguson said. “Seriously, man. I’m a contractor. I do my thing. I love him and I love UFC and stuff like that, but I’m just a piece of meat out there. Do you know what I mean?”
