It’s become clear why Tony Ferguson left his old management company, Paradigm Sports, to sign with Ballengee Group in April.

In a recent interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Ferguson, the former UFC interim lightweight champion, says Paradigm sports did everything they could to prevent him from fighting their golden goose, Conor McGregor.

According to ‘El Cucuy’, McGregor is the one calling the shots at Paradigm Sports.

“When I asked them, I said straight up, ‘I want Conor next,’ they basically told me no,” Ferguson said, per Low Kick MMA’s Abhinav Kini. “They’re defending him the same way Dana is defending him. Any person that’s got their hands in Conor’s pockets, they’re kissing their a**. I’m…

Like it mattered what Tony wanted. Conor holds the cards for who he fights.

Gosh dammit to the fact that that Khabib fight never made into the cage

With a bit of luck, by the end of the year, he will be holding nothing but the bars of his cell, while some 20 stone traveller goes to work on his back takes.

Best part of that interview.

“El Cucuy” was not done talking about UFC president Dana White either. While another win for Ferguson should guarantee him getting the next crack at the title, White recently claimed he could see a rematch between Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor happening. Here’s what Ferguson thought of that statement:

“That’s because he’s a fathead too,” Ferguson responded. “I’m going to tell you straight up, he’s a fathead too. I’m not talking down on Dana but Dana’s pissed on me more than once or twice man. He said anybody that wore glasses inside should have that sh*t done to them.

Remember when I tripped? I wasn’t wearing sunglasses. I was wearing prescription glasses. I’m going to get p*ssed on either way man. They want to keep a brown man down. They don’t want to see me with money. Why? Because I might help myself, my family? Give a kid a chance.

You want to book McGregor, Khabib, and make your own pockets fat? Cut me out a check and I’ll sit on the sidelines. But I’m not your backup no more. You like me, you don’t. I’m the people’s champ. I’ve had my belt before Dustin and I’ve had it before even Khabib.

So I can't be fucked tracking down the video, but sunglasses can have prescription lenses - it doesn't make them not sunglasses. Pretty sure he was wearing sunglasses like he always does in addition to his 1980s coke dealer attire.

The fathead cunt has fucked Tony but Tony's brain has also fucked Tony.
