UFC 216: Tony Ferguson calls out Conor McGregor after winning interim lightweight title
Nevada State Athletic Commission director Bob Bennett announced that as long as Lee was cleared to continue cutting weight by a doctor, the 25-year-old would be given an additional hour to shed the remaining pound.
He said: "He wants to fight again this year".
Addressing McGregor he added: "You're in check and I'm great at chess". Whatever I'm going through doesn't take away from what he did. If Ferguson is to be believed, the execution of his plan is eerily reminiscent of McGregor, who gained a "Mystic Mac" alter ego in the UFC for predicting precisely what would occur in his fights.
White specifically shot down the former, calling it, "Internet (expletive)", and expressed confidence McGregor still wanted to fight before the end of the year - likely at UFC 219 on December 30 at T-Mobile.
No.2 contender Ferguson (22-3) is favourite for the fight, having amassed a nine-fight win streak stretching back to his last loss in May 2012 (vs Michael Johnson). He's got nowhere else to run. I've got both belts, a chunk of money, and a little family on the way.
"He's running out of time - he needs to defend or vacate".
