Tony Ferguson Sensationally Claims He Is Owed Half A Million Dollars By Conor McGregor And Paradigm Sports Management

Tony Ferguson has sensationally claimed he's owed half a million dollars by Conor McGregor and Paradigm Sports Management.

The 36-year-old alleges that Paradigm, a company that represents McGregor, owes him 'half-a-mil' after denying him the chance to fight the Irishman while they both fell under the same banner.

After seeing negotiations to fight Dustin Poirier in the co-main event at UFC 254 fall through, Ferguson made the revelations in a foul-mouthed tirade on BT Sport before stating that he is still targeting a fight with McGregor.

Ferguson, who also hit out at Khabib Nurmagomedov, took aim at the UFC after he felt he was overlooked in the pound-for-pound and lightweight rankings.

When asked how close it was to getting him on the UFC 254 card with Poirier, Ferguson, now managed by Ballengee Group, said: "I don't know, that dude is a bitch. He's a bitch, Conor's a bitch, Khabib's a bitch.

"I saw that they were going to take the No 2 and No 4 and then put them over me. Get one with [Michael] Chandler, do that, and put me at No 5. F*** that!

"It's not happening. I've been at this company for a very, very long time and it's happened once before with Conor. It's not happening.

"You can't be using that and manipulating the system along with the UFC to get that money.

"Those guys owe me like half-a-mil. You got to understand that. Conor is in debt with me so I'm coming after that ass. That's why he's laughing any time I post something."

Ferguson will fight Charles Oliveira in the co-main event at UFC 256, where he will be looking to bounce back from defeat by Justin Gaethje at UFC 249 back in May.
