VIDEO | Dan Hardy Thinks The Fight to Make for Conor McGregor is Tony Ferguson

If Conor McGregor campaigned for a fight against the winner of Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre, then he’d probably get it. You’re talking about a fighter who pick whoever he wants out of thin…

“WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM DO IS UNITE THE BELTS. I THINK TONY FERGUSON IS DEFINITELY DESERVING OF THAT TITLE SHOT AGAINST CONOR MCGREOGR AND I DON’T LIKE TWO BELTS FLOATING AROUND IN THE DIVISION FOR TOO LONG. I THINK THAT THE INTERIM TITLE IS A PLACEHOLDER FOR THE REAL TITLE. YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE THAT FOR VERY LONG. SO, IT MAKES SENSE FOR MCGREGOR TO COME BACK AND DEFEND THE BELT AGAINST TONY FERGUSON. OBVIOUSLY THE MONEY FIGHT IS [NATE] DIAZ, EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE THAT, INCLUDING ME. BUT, FOR THE INTEGRITY OF THE SPORT AND FOR MCGREGOR’S LEGACY, HE NEEDS TO SOLIDIFY HIMSELF AS A CHAMPION THAT WOULD DEFEND HIS BELT, WHICH HE HAS NOT DONE YET. HE’S GETTING A LOT OF HEAT FOR THAT FROM THE FANS AND I THINK NOW HE’S GOT A BANK ACCOUNT FULL OF CASH. HE DOESN’T REALLY NEED TO WORRY TOO MUCH ABOUT THAT NOW. HE CAN FOCUS ON THE THINGS HE WANTS TO ACHIEVE AS AN ATHLETE.”
