Forever linked with a potential lightweight excursion against former interim titleholder, Tony Ferguson, former duel-weight champion, Conor McGregor has today hit out at his former Paradigm Sports Management stablemate, labelling him “broke” in reaction to a fan-made video on Ferguson’s Twitter account.

McGregor, a former undisputed lightweight and featherweight champion, has yet to return to the Octagon since July of last year, headlining UFC 264 in a first round doctor’s stoppage TKO loss to Dustin Poirier. The 34-year-old suffered a fractured left tibia and fibula in the first round of the clash.

For Ferguson, the Oxnard veteran slumped to his fifth consecutive loss in an impromptu UFC 279 headliner in September, dropping a fourth round guillotine loss to Nate Diaz in his return to the welterweight limit. The defeat followed prior consecutive losses against Michael Chandler, Beneil Dariush, Charles Oliveira, and Justin Gaethje
