UFC star Tony Ferguson blasts Conor McGregor as 'international terrorist' and Dustin Poirier 'sell out' over fight
TONY FERGUSON blasted Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier after the pair agreed to rematch.
McGregor – who beat Poirier at featherweight in 2014 – was offered a January 23 headliner against the American.
But he was bizarrely named an 'international terrorist' by Ferguson, who then called Poirier a 'sell out'.
The 36-year-old – who was stopped by Justin Gaethje in his last fight – launched the attack on Twitter.
He wrote: "What A Sell Out, Taking A Bribe From An International Terrorist.
"Good Job Kid. I Represent America. All That Talk About The Fight Game Only To Be Afraid & Be Left Behind Out Of The Loop.
"Take The Money & Be Proud Fake."
Ferguson was due to fight Poirier, 31, at UFC 254, which is headlined by Gaethje, also 31, and Khabib Nurmagomedov, 32.
But the UFC could not come to terms with either lightweight contender.
McGregor, 32, initially challenged Poirier to a charity exhibition in Ireland at the end of the year.
But the UFC followed up by offering the two a rematch in the octagon, but The Notorious still pledged to donate $500,000 to charity.
Ferguson's online swipe was criticised by fans on Twitter.
One said: "Not a good look for you here, Tony considering how much money is being raised for charity."
Another said: "This is so uncalled for. It's a great thing they're doing here. Stop trying to find something negative in everything man."
One added: "Taking a bribe = accepting a donation for a charity that helps those in true need. You been there, and still can’t see it? Who you helping?"
