Ferguson Has Wanted Pettis Since UFC 181

At UFC 181, Anthony Pettis and Tony Ferguson were both on the card, and now the two men will stand across from one another at UFC 229 in October. While this is a first time matchup, Ferguson has been anticipating this showdown since 181, where Ferguson felt he and his team were disrespected by Pettis’ team, and over the weekend has demanded an answer from his opponent.

 

 

“Technical Fall” … @showtimepettis Your Team Tried To Dog My Squad In The Stands At UFC 181 & My Coach At The Time Told Me, Dont Worry About Him… “You Cant Big League A Big Leaguer”. I Told You I’d See You Soon Kid, Now Your Gonna Have To Answer To Me Toe-2-Toe Vato. I’ll Accept A Public Apology Before The Fight If You Want To Squash It & Fight Like Gentlemen. Either Way I’m Bringing The Pain, So I’ll See You Soon Hombre. Shhhhh Be Good Pretty Boy Tienes Suerte No Es #ufc229 Shoutout To The Good Coaches & Trainers Out There Making A Difference, Happy Training- Champ Time -2- #snapintuit SnapJitsu™️ @ufc @danawhite.”

Ferguson is looking to bounce back from a torn LCL, which he suffered in a freak injury doing media for UFC 223. Following the injury he was stripped of his interim lightweight title and had a undisputed title fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov cancelled from the now ill-fated event.
