UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor broke his silence on interim title holder Tony Ferguson (we think) when he tweeted a picture Friday casting himself as Tony Montana from “Scarface” – using the style of the “Grand Theft Auto” video game – with the simple caption: “Tony.”
As expected, the Tony we believe McGregor was calling out had a rather quick response in the form of a “Grand Theft Auto”-inspired video of sorts.
I say “of sorts” because … well, just take a look:
“Zero ??Fucks” ??????????#DefendorVacate MF’er ??????#TonyFergusonMMA SnapJitsu™ #SnapDownCity This Is My Mat.
Is your mind not blown after watching that? And if your mind isn’t blown, that’s because you accept the fact this is “El Cucuy” we’re talking about.
Which is to say just go with it.
Like the montage, McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) has been all over the map about his future plans. But is there any doubt that his next move shouldn’t be a title unification with Ferguson (24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC). The build-up alone should be epic.
Tell me you wouldn’t watch.
