Ferguson To McGregor: “I Will Haunt Your F****** Dreams”

Ferguson To McGregor: “I Will Haunt Your F****** Dreams”

What will Fergusson say to McGregor ?

“El Cucuy” is a mythical ghost monster found in Hispanic culture. Think of El Cucuy like the Spanish boogeyman, the monster that kids worry about being under the bed or in the closet. Its no surprise then that UFC lightweight interim champion Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA 13-1 UFC) adopted El Cucuy as his nickname.

After nine straight wins Ferguson captured the lightweight interim belt with a triangle submission of Kevin Lee at UFC 216. In a normal scenario, Ferguson’s next fight would be a lightweight title unification bout with McGregor.  There’s no telling if or when McGregor and Ferguson will come to blows in the octagon.  With talk of a Nate Diaz trilogy as well as potential boxing fights in the picture, it’s in the air.


Dana White stated at the UFC 216 post-fight press conference that the unification bout between Ferguson and McGregor “has to happen”. But when it comes to McGregor and other big money fights, sometimes Uncle Dana changes his mind sporadically. During an interview on The MMA Hour, Ferguson showed faith that the fight will come to fruition sooner than later:

I believe so [the fight with McGregor will happen]. If Dana says it, then we’re going to hold it to him. The UFC is pretty good with that, right?  I don’t want to make them a liar, so this sh*t needs to happen. Look, Conor watches the fights. This dude didn’t say sh*t. He didn’t say sh*t on Twitter. He didn’t even comment saying ‘good fight.’ He said he was looking forward to watching this fight — he hasn’t said nothing. McGregor is scared. He’s running.

I told him, just set the belt down and walk away and nobody will get hurt

. That’s all you’ve got to do: just set it down and you won’t get ass kicked, I swear, by another Mexican. This is a tough fight for him, man, and I don’t think that he’s got enough cornermen in the world to try to help him on this one.


I’ve wrestled them all, I’ve fought them all, and Conor is not different than any other man or human being in this world.

The man wants to call himself a god, but he bleeds, so I can expose him as well. I guarantee you, there’s no big animosity there, but the callout was real and it was genuine. I really want to kick this dude’s ass because I believe that my skills are better. I’ll be a better champ and I would defend the belt. He defends the belt zero times. Zero times. He won it, he talked his way into this sh*t.

My management knows exactly where I stand with this, and I don’t stand for that kind of sh*t. I’m here right now putting numbers behind it, the same way that I made them take me into The Ultimate Fighter.

Conor needs his ass kicked and we need to unify that belt. Otherwise he needs to vacate, set it down, walk away, and never f*cking come back. Because if you go to 170, if you go to 185, or even if you drop to 145, I will f*cking follow you Conor.

I will haunt your f*cking dreams, kid, and I will come after you. And one day, no matter whether we have the same management or not, you will f*cking see me again. And I will put some pain on you, bro.
