Dana White recently revealed that he has an opponent lined up for Tony Ferguson. According to the former interim lightweight champion’s latest social media activity, that opponent is Michael Chandler.

On Saturday, Ferguson took to Twitter to suggest Chandler will be his next fight, while also accusing the former 3x Bellator champion of delaying the bout.

“There’s My Bitch!!! @MikeChandlerMMAThe Brass @danawhite @ufc Relayed Your Message Saying You Would Be Ready For Me April/June,” Ferguson wrote. “Looks Like Your Trying To Delay That Ass-Whoopin’ I Owe Ya For Cutting In Line Kid- It’s Wrestling Season MF, Man Up- Champ”

“Oh Tony. There’s only a handful of guys in this game I truly respect…you’re one of them,” Chandler replied. “Only because of your tenure, not your stature or your current presence in the division. I’ll beat you from bell to bell. Pray for a merciful ref. We shall see if this fight happens.”

Tony Ferguson & Michael Chandler Are Both On Losing Streaks

‘El Cucuy’ is currently riding a three-fight losing streak after suffering consecutive defeats to Justin Gaethje, Charles Oliveira, and Beneil Dariush. Ferguson looks way past his prime at this point and didn’t manage to win a round in any of those three fights. Nonetheless, Ferguson remains defiant and insists he will return to form in 2022.

After debuting in impressive fashion at UFC 257 in January 2021, Chandler was given a shot at the vacant lightweight title. Despite starting well against Oliveira at UFC 263, Chandler suffered a second-round TKO defeat. Last time out, Chandler went to war with Gaethje in the best fight of the year but ultimately fell to a decisive defeat. Chandler still appears to be at the top of his game and would surely be the favourite in a fight with Ferguson.
