Tony Ferguson has taken aim during Conor McGregor on several occasions given he claimed a UFC halt lightweight pretension with a third turn acquiescence over Kevin Lee in a categorical eventuality of UFC 216 on Saturday night.
Most recently, “El Cucuy” seemed on The MMA Hour, and explained how he would haunt McGregor’s dreams as he chases him down for a pretension shot.
Conor McGregor’s manager Owen Roddy assimilated Submission Radio to give his greeting to a halt pretension fight. Although Roddy echoed his earlier sentiments about Nate Diaz being his welfare for McGregor’s subsequent fight, he concluded that Ferguson too would make for a good matchup for a Irishman.
That being said, he thinks “The Notorious” would overcome Ferguson with his pointing striking.
“His character is, we know, it’s not traditional, it’s a bit unusual and stuff, though we only overtly consider that Conor’s going to be approach too purify for Ferguson,” Roddy told Submission Radio hosts Kacper Rosolowski and Denis Shkuratov.
“If Ferguson tries to mount with Conor for an extended duration of time it will be lights out, in my opinion.
“You know, he’s tough as well, he’s tough and durable, so he might take a integrate of smacks, though during a finish of a day Conor’s going to be approach too purify and too technical to… he won’t get touched.
“That’s my opinion. But yeah, it will be an engaging one and it will be an sparkling quarrel as good since Ferguson does come to quarrel and he’s aggressive, he goes in, he looks to finish fights, so it will be exciting. But yeah, though a doubt if he wants to mount and crash with Conor it’ll be lights out sincerely quick, we think.”
Roddy doesn’t see a newly crowned champ’s chin holding adult in a identical conform to Diaz’s in his initial dual bouts with McGregor.
“I consider a one singular thing that Diaz has is only that unimaginable chin, and like, we don’t consider Ferguson would be means to take a shots that Diaz took,” pronounced Roddy.
“Do we know what we mean? we consider he would be defunct or a ref would have stepped in and have stopped a quarrel if Conor lands. Where Diaz, like, Conor was alighting all a shots on Diaz as good and all a other things that we came adult with worked opposite Diaz, it’s only he kept entrance and entrance and entrance and coming.
“I don’t consider Ferguson is as durable as Diaz, so we consider we’ll be good means to land a shots. You know, there’s copiousness of holes in there in Ferguson’s diversion and we consider we can gain and land any shots that we need to land.”
Roddy went on to contend how he still feels a immeasurable infancy of fans wish to see a Diaz trilogy fight, though also highlighted that a Ferguson quarrel done sense.
Although Roddy can see a clarity in a joint quarrel with Ferguson, he doubts that McGregor sees most legitimacy in Ferguson’s halt title.
“Conor has his belts during home and he’s never mislaid them, so in his eyes it’s not real, like, we know what we mean?”
He added: “Conor’s always got his belts during home, and nobody’s came and kick him to get those belts, so in his eyes he’s still a featherweight champion and he’s still a lightweight champion. And we consider a Ferguson quarrel will be exciting, either it comes progressing subsequent year or whenever, though we consider it will be an sparkling fight.”
The SBG Charlestown conduct manager claimed that he expects McGregor to lapse to a Octagon for his subsequent fight, notwithstanding some speak of intensity fighting bouts with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and former ring partner Paulie Malignaggi being on a table.
He also couldn’t totally order out McGregor returning in December. He did advise that another quarrel in 2017 was doubtful and claimed he would cite to see McGregor quarrel in a new year.
