Conor McGregor has finally responded to newly crowned UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson.
“El Cucuy” became the UFC’s interim lightweight champion earlier this month at UFC 216 in Las Vegas by defeating Kevin Lee via third-round submission.
Following his victory over Lee, Ferguson proceeded to call out the current UFC lightweight champion who he referred to as “McNugget”.
Ferguson demanded that “Mystic Mac” either defend or vacate his lightweight strap during his UFC 216 post-fight speech.
Conor McGregor has not competed in MMA since defeating Eddie Alvarez via second-round knockout at UFC 205 in November of 2016 to become the UFC lightweight champion of the world.
