TONY FERGUSON has slammed Conor McGregor’s character and branded him “mentally weak” over his comments in the wake of his loss to Michael Chandler.
And former interim lightweight champion Ferguson believes the Irishman’s actions are a reflection of his true personality.
“It’s just to taunt people, it’s mentally weak. It’s like when you use a GameGenie and you’re able to win fast, you don’t really have fun anymore.
“He’s trying to enjoy everybody’s else stuff.

“The dude was riding my bike on his run trail. He was even kicking the pole, it was the most ridiculous stuff.”
Ferguson and McGregor have history with one another as they were both represented by Paradigm Sports Management.
Fan favourite Ferguson parted ways with Paradigm in 2019 as he believed they didn’t have his best interests at heart.
He was also enraged by The Notorious reportedly breaking his promise not to pursue the lightweight crown when signed with Paradigm.
Ferguson responded to McGregor’s taunting of him – which included a still image of him being kicked in the face by Chandler – after it came to his attention.
彼はツイートした: “ああ, there’s my b****. Next time tag me p****.
“Comin’ after you and your crew. McNugget stays with you, 偽, can’t take [what’s not yours] もう, thief.
“Still got no sauce and no balls, McNuggets.
“I’ll see you and your crew soon, coming after your gold leprechaun.”
Defeat to Chandler was Ferguson’s fourth on the spin, with the previous three coming at the hands of ジャスティン・ゲイジー, Charles Oliveira and Beneil Dariush.
Like Ferguson, McGregor is out of the win column having lost back-to-back fights to ダスティン・ポイエー 昨年.
