Legal act prevented Tony Ferguson vs. Conor McGregor, claims El Cucuy

Tony Ferguson fell to Michael Chandler two weeks ago on the main card of UFC 274. The loss, which came via a stunning front kick KO, was Ferguson’s fourth defeat in a row.

This week Ferguson appeared on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani to discuss that fight and a host of other topics.

When discussing what might be next for him, Ferguson talked about a potential fight with Conor McGregor. During this part of the conversation, Ferguson claimed he’d wanted to fight the former champion for a while, but that it had been illegal for him to do so.
