Tony Ferguson says he’s wanted to fight Anthony Pettis since altercation at UFC 181

Tony Ferguson says there is bad blood between himself and Anthony Pettis that needs to be resolved in the cage.

At UFC 229, Tony Ferguson will make his return to action after suffering a brutal knee injury earlier this year.

And while he won’t be making that come back against Conor McGregor or Khabib Nurmagomedov, Ferguson’s UFC 229 opponent Anthony Pettis apparently still motivates ‘El CuCuy’ to show up and perform. Because, despite it taking place four years ago, Ferguson still remembers an incident between his own team and Pettis’ at UFC 181.

“@showtimepettis Your Team Tried To Dog My Squad In The Stands At UFC 181 & My Coach At The Time Told Me, Dont Worry About Him… ‘You Cant Big League A Big Leaguer’,” Ferguson wrote, in his own over-capitalized style. “I Told You I’d See You Soon Kid, Now Your Gonna Have To Answer To Me Toe-2-Toe Vato. I’ll Accept A Public Apology Before The Fight If You Want To Squash It & Fight Like Gentlemen. Either Way I’m Bringing The Pain, So I’ll See You Soon Hombre. Shhhhh Be Good Pretty Boy Tienes Suerte No Es #ufc229 Shoutout To The Good Coaches & Trainers Out There Making A Difference, Happy Training- Champ Time -2- #snapintuit SnapJitsu™️ @ufc @danawhite.”

Ferguson currently rides a ten fight win streak, and prior to his injury in April was the UFC interim lightweight champion.
