“I’m going to fight until the wheels fall out,” Tony Ferguson told Rampage Jackson on the JAXXON Podcast. “F*ck retiring, dude. If you’re a competitor for the longest time – and I’m a three-sport athlete. I wanted to go back and play pro ball. I wanted to go and do another f*cking thing. I wanted to do all this sh*t because I’m that guy.”

“I’m not saying I got burned out, but I got burned out with MMA,” Tony Ferguson explained. “Pandemic – my business was the only one that didn’t close. I kept sports going, dude. Not one other motherf*cker put the belt on the line to keep sports going. B*tches from Khabib’s (Nurmagomedov) camp ran back to f*ckin’ mommy. Conor (McGregor) was telling everybody to stay inside. My ass was sitting out here f*cking being the only f*cking car going down 17th. street doing all this sh*t.”
