Oct 09, 2017, 00:27
Tony Ferguson has issued a challenge to lightweight champion Conor McGregor following his win over Kevin Lee at UFC 216 on Saturday (October 7) in Las Vegas. After almost submitting a fading Lee (16-3) in Round 3 with an armbar, Ferguson locked in a triangle choke to force the tap at 4:02. "I'm fresh. I'm ready to go back to [training] Monday".
"I wanted him to come at me, use all that aggression and leave no energy for that submission".
"I'm not injured. Let's go tonight", Ferguson said. Then, in the final stanza, he delivered something to satisfy more than just the diehards.
Lee, who had actually struggled to make the weight cut, still managed to pull out a decent performance despite entering the Octagon on Saturday with a staph infection, as evidenced by a red blotch on his chest.
While McGregor likes the idea of fighting Khabib in Russian Federation, his inconsistency in showing up to fights puts millions in promoting at stake if he doesn't make weight. I think it's time for me to go up [to welterweight].
"A little too much to handle", Lee admitted. "I should've been on antibiotics but what can I say?" And I knew I was going to get it. His bottom work, he's the man.
The American got the job done with a triangle joke and insists he can immobilise 155lb king McGregor on the ground as well.
"Where are you at McNuggets?" You fucking piece of shit.
"I wanted to demonstrate to everyone that I'm a full, complete MMA fighter", Ferguson said of landing kicks against Lee, then winning even though Lee was atop him in the third round.
"You better come and f*****g defend that belt".
"He's running out of time - he needs to defend or vacate".
