Tony Ferguson has spoken directly to those who have prying into his personal life of late after some well-publicised issues he was dealing with outside of the octagon.
After the news came out that Ferguson’s wife had filed for a temporary restraining order against following numerous instances of bizarre and frightening behaviour, there was been a massive outpour of support from the fighting community for El Cucuy.
Tony is among the most electric competitors in the game today – a truly unique talent who puts on a show each and every time he steps into the octagon.
Now, with him seemingly back on course and set to compete at this weekend’s UFC 238, Ferguson was in great spirits as he addressed the media – thanking them all for their support while expressing his supreme confidence in his ability to rack up another win.
At one point, however, he was asked by MMAJunkie to speak directly to those who have been overly eager to understand more about what it is he has been going through in the last few months.
“I tell them to f**k off. Stop worrying about s**t you can’t handle, man. It’s not your f**king problem. You really want to f**king worry about how I am?
“Buy my f**king pay-per-view. Send me some money, send me whatever, I don’t give a s**t. But quit asking dumbass questions. You want to keep asking me those questions, I’m going to say ‘f**k you’. Straight up. I’m back, motherf**ker.”
In general, though, the interview is a fantastic watch and showcases a man who is truly one of the most entertaining and engrossing figures in the sport.
