Connor McGregor has mocked Tony Ferguson on Twitter by calling him “Chicken Nugget” after “El Cucuy” was knocked out by Micheal Chandler at UFC 274.
Tony Ferguson is one of the most famous names in the Lightweight division. A veteran, who once boasted a twelve-fight win streak, has somewhat lost his spark after three straight defeats. His fight against Micheal Chandler was seemingly an opportunity to end his bad run of form.
Although Tony started well, he lost everything at the start of the second round. Chandler finished the round as soon as it started with a brutal head kick. Many people on social media are calling it one of the most spectacular knockouts that they have ever seen. For sure, it is the best knockout that we have seen this year. Ferguson, who is known for his never-give-up attitude, lost consciousness immediately. He woke up after a few minutes, but his him being unconscious really says a lot.
One person who has mocked Tony Ferguson on Twitter is the former two-division champion, Connor McGregor. One of the biggest names in the division, McGregor is widely known for his trash talking. He called Ferguson a “Chicken Nugget” after an image went viral of Ferguson seconds before he got knocked out.
How Ferguson responds to this remains to be seen. But you can be sure that it will take a while for a response to come around after such a brutal knockout. Many people are speculating that this is the end of the road for Ferguson. The former interim champion seems far from the levels of the division’s top players, and getting back in the title mix is a very tough ask. A fight between him and McGregor can’t be ruled out either.
