Tony Ferguson has already sent a message to Dana White after the UFC boss stated that the projected fight between Ferguson and Dustin Poirier wasn’t happening.
White previously said that Ferguson’s next opponent was “probably” Poirier, who is also a former interim lightweight champion.
It had been reported that Ferguson had verbally agreed to the terms proposed by the UFC, but the holdup is Porier as he wanted more money. This fight was supposed to be the co-headliner of UFC 254.
