Ferguson is an elite fighter, possibly the best LW in the world (outside of Khabib, Conor, or Nate) before his antics came off as cringey and he was made fun of. Now that he has snapped and lashed out in a number of non-violent ways he seems to be more popular than ever. The “Tony Ferguson is the type of guy” thing could go on for years and he could finally become a marketable star as an anti-hero. This seems like a natural progression for someone like Ferguson and as long as no one gets hurt I think it’s not that big of a deal. This could even expedite his path to a title shot. He seems to have stolen McGregor’s bad boy swag which made him so rich.
