On Monday, former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson took to social media to air his frustrations. After his freak injury during UFC 223 fight week, Tony Ferguson was stripped of his interim title by the UFC. This decision was not taken lightly by Ferguson.
He feels mistreated and he believes that Khabib Nurmagomedov was gifted the championship after he faced last minute replacement Al Iaquinta. Ferguson is currently unable to compete after undergoing knee surgery, but this didn’t stop him from sending jabs at Al Iaquinta and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

It’s unclear when Ferguson will return to the Octagon, but he continues to keep his name in the headlines. Perhaps, when he returns, he may have the opportunity to take on Al Iaquinta inside the UFC’s Octagon.
