Tony Ferguson on Paddy Pimblett

During the recent media day, Tony Ferguson shared his thoughts on fighting Paddy Pimblett and explained how fans will see a new version of him on Saturday night. "He's worried about me blocking him on Instagram, and I'm like, 'You're a little,'" Ferguson said, as mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

"If you're going to talk, man up and keep your balls between your legs. Don't drop them. I know he's all about the YouTube and all of those things, and he's got the wigs and the crowd and everything. I'm not here to have fun. I might've did that before taking some chances, giving these fighters like an alley-oop to where they're at right now.

But I'm not around anymore. If someone else were to say it I would be like, 'That's cool, man.' But no. You had your chance to be nice and do this. I'm glad to know that you had a change of heart and listened to everybody else.

I'm washed up. That means I'm cleaned up. Feel fresh. So this little going to get his hands full on Saturday".
