    Tony Ferguson is not on the best of terms with Dana White.

    The former interim lightweight champion seems to have taken major offense to White’s derogatory comments about him wearing shades prescription glasses indoors and, just earlier this week, ‘El Cucuy’ called the UFC president a ‘fathead.’

    Now, in a separate interview with MMA Junkie, Ferguson revealed that he is trying to distance himself from the head promoter and said he is under no obligation to treat White as his boss.


    “There was a lot of emotional damage,” Ferguson said at Thursday’s UFC 238 media scrum in Chicago. I mean, just more than anything else, coming from Dana’s mouth, saying that ‘Anybody that wears…

    this is not a good move for his career but seems to make terrible choices in general.

    Attacking the head of your company on social media is GREAT for your career! But I am 100% Tony is mentally unstable so... Get after it bro! Show your actual boss who is the boss!!!

    You can bet dana just offered some big bonus money to cerrone to take him out, just like he did to Lyoto when he fought tito.

    dana should shut the fuck up and be happy he has great fighters to make great fights instead of shitting all over them. shut your big mouth and promote these guys and make money. what a child this guy is. dana is piss poor at his job at best.

    Has he not seen what happens when you talk shit about Dana? Not a good idea. He better hope he can beat every person in his division because he will be getting the worst possible matchups.

    if you think about it dana can be a great promoter some times and the worst fucking promoter ever sometimes. if he is in mcgregor circus mode dana will promote the shit out of a fight. if he doesnt like someone though he will publicly trash and diminish the value of guys he is supposed to be promoting.that is the exact opposite of what a promoter is supposed to hbe doing

    As long as he keeps winning it dont matter how he talks about dana. Especially after the sale.
