“THE SPORT IS ONE WHERE THEY’RE GOING TO COMPETE. IF YOU HAVE CLIENTS IN THE SAME WEIGHT CLASS, AND THEY’RE THE TOP OF THE DIVISION, THEY’RE GOING TO MEET. WITH TONY [FERGUSON] AND CONOR [MCGREGOR], IT’S INEVITABLE. YOU HAVE THE LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMP AND THE INTERIM LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMP, SO THAT’S A FIGHT THAT’S NATURALLY GOING TO HAPPEN. I CAN’T SAY [WHO MCGREGOR WILL FIGHT NEXT]. HERE’S WHAT I WILL TELL YOU: TONY EARNED A SHOT AT THE BELT. HE WON THE INTERIM LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE.”
