Talking on ESPN’s Ariel Helwani MMA Show, Tony revealed that he won't look for any other bout before he gets his title fight.
"He’s like one of those ex-girlfriends. I stopped worrying about that. Now he’s mentioning my name? Get the (expletive) out of here."
“If push comes to shove, I see him fighting the loser of this next fight this weekend. If you want to keep up with the rankings, we have to do it the right way. Maybe I’ll give him a shot (if he beats loser of UFC 242).”
Ferguson has won 12 straight fights and hasn't lost a single bout since May 2012. He also won the interim belt and never actually lost it in a fight but was stripped off due to injury.
