Former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson will return to the octagon at next month’s UFC 238 event in Chicago for a scrap with Donald Cerrone.

The bout will mark Ferguson’s first since UFC 229 in October of 2018, where he defeated Anthony Pettis by way of TKO.

While ‘El Cucuy’ is clearly focused in on defeating ‘Cowboy’ on June 8, he still has some animosity towards Team Khabib, in particular the Russian’s “snitch” manager Ali Abdelaziz.

Tony Ferguson took to Twitter last night where he blasted Ali, this while warning the controversial manager to keep his name out of his mouth.

“Ain’t No Clowning Around You Fake F*ck. @AliAbdelaziz00 You Better Leave My Name Out Of Your Mouth Before I Mop The Mat With Your Sorry Ass. You Ain’t Shit W/ Out Your Homeboys Ya Snitch. No Pride, No Guts, Just Like Your Paper Chump @TeamKhabib See You In Person Soon.” – Tony Ferguson

Never one to back down, at least not on social media, Ali Abdelaziz fired back at Ferguson with the following.

“You fighting on the under card June 8 Focus on that and shut your mouth Talk is Cheap next time you see me do Something about it punk boy.”

Tony Ferguson would respond to Ali’s reply with one final message in which he called the Dominance MMA manager an embarrassment to the sport.

“I Can’t Stoop To Your Level Anymore. You’re An Embarrassment To This Sport & To All MMA Fans. I’m Too Focused For You & Anyone Else. Yeah I’m Fighting On The Undercard For #UFC238 But I Don’t Mind. It’s Champ Shit Only Ali, Something You’ll Never Know About. Praying For You” – Tony Ferguson

UFC 238 takes place June 8 live from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The event is headlined by a bantamweight title fight featuring reining flyweight kingpin Henry Cejudo taking on Marlon Moraes.
