“@danthehangman is “sick of waiting”, wants Tony Ferguson at #UFC281: “Only one can continue, only one can keep going forward. But that’s a big fight, Tony’s a big fight. A win for either one of us puts the other one right back in the mix, right? And that’s where you want to be.”

Dan Hooker continued to discuss a match-up with Ferguson saying:

“I’m sick of training, I want to go into a fight camp, I want to fight, and it’s just that time. Tony Ferguson is the fight that they’re interested in. I think that fight makes a lot of sense. We’re both in similar positions and I think that fight makes sense.

Concluding ‘The Hangman’ said:

“My management wants that fight, I think the fans want that fight. And so how do you pick a fight? You tell someone you’re gonna smash their face in. And if they agree, they agree. Those are fighting words. If you want to pick a fight, you gotta use fighting words. Smash ya face in, premium quality fighting words. Can’t be ignored. Now your honor’s at stake. If you ignore that, now your honor is at stake, my friend.”

UFC 281 takes place on Saturday, November 12th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
