Former interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson, who caused a traffic accident while intoxicated a week ago, made his first statement since his arrest.
“I accept the challenge,” wrote an American fighter who crashed several cars near a nightclub in Hollywood on a social network. “It’s time to fight again guys. Daddy wants to hurt someone”
Does this mean that Ferguson is assigned a fight, or by doing so he only expressed a desire to receive it, is still unknown. Two months ago, there was information that Tony Ferguson’s next opponent could be his compatriot Kevin Lee, who signed a new contract with the UFC.
Last September, 39-year-old Tony Ferguson suffered his fifth straight loss at UFC 279 in Las Vegas to Nate Diaz by fourth-round guillotine choke, after which he was removed from the top 15 UFC lightweight rankings, which has not left for seven years.
