    According to Brett Okamoto, Tony was offered Max Holloway for the interim 155 belt and Tony declined, so the fight was given to Dustin. We made so many Tony Ferguson jokes, we built this man to wuthering heights, we hyped him as the unbeatable guy who is not afraid to fight anyone anywhere. I guess he is waiting for a better offer, Max is too dangerous and unrewarding at this point. El Cucuy is becoming a businessman, it happens to the best eventually.

    He deserves the shot, UFC got one over on him before, he won't be that silly again! As long as khabib is champ, Tony will always be in the mix the fight has to happen khabib knows this too! Tony's win streak says it all!

    I don't blame him, the UFC are a piece of shit company.

    I'm more of a Conor/Khabib fan but right is right, and he deserves a title shot, for a real title.

    He always turns down tough fights.

    Been saying it for years and everyone always gets mad. They just can't handle the truth.

    He only takes easy match ups. this-could-be-you-but-youre-too-scaredto-fight-memes-14922461.png

    the interim should exist since there was an active defending lightweight champion. his guarnteed title shot, he got vs khabib and he missed it. after the fight there was no need for an interim and thats why he got stripped. simple really.

    Tony's had very few "easy" match ups, he's been in countless wars!

    He's trying to get a fight with Conor going, most likely. I don't blame him.

    Why should he fight for another worthless belt that he never even lost in the first place.

    He could not handle another beating.

    He only took the Lando fight because he thought it would be an easy fight. 072_Johnson_vs_Ferguson.1336270512.0.jpg 9382945.jpg

    Man, tbh I'm tired of types like Tony. When he finally gets a chance to really fight Khabib, winning against Holloway, he declines. KNOWING Khabib will only fight in NOVEMBER. Come on. FUCK Tony, well done UFC.

    AND WAR HOLLOWAY!!

    He THOUGHT they would be easy.

    He has put on some good fights though.

    Well I don't blame him, he's been on a win streak since like 2012-fought tough top contenders along the way and puts on a good show. Why take a fight against Max? Because he can't make weight at 145 anymore and wants to skip the queue? I mean when did Max fight Lee, Ianquinta, Barboza, etc to skip straight to title fights?

    I like Max, but come on in the last 8 months the guy has been hospitalized twice for weight/hydration issues-it's not a reliable fight to take after long long paying you dues like Tony has done already.

    Tony has taken a lot of injuries and he is also getting older. Realistically speaking, he doesn't have many fights left. Fighting Max does nothing for him since Max doesn't come with a belt and he is lighter moving up.

    This interim fight would put him first in line. Now, if you have the interim title holder, they would be the first to get a crack at Khabib.

    The real champion is suspended and if there was any common sense involved he would have been stripped of the title too.

    So the real title should be up for grabs, not an interim one.

    Normal civilized behavior should be a part of being the champ.
