Daniel Cormier says Tony Ferguson will get 'sniped' by Conor McGregor

McGregor (21-3) tweeted earlier today a picture casting himself as the fictional Tony Montana from "Scarface"-from the popular video game "Grand Theft Auto"-by simply saying "Tony". Due to Ferguson's unorthodox approach, his wrestling background, arsenal of submissions, and resiliency, some observers think he could end McGregor's reign, if and when they fight.

Since McGregor hasn't defended his 155-pound title in almost a year, an interim belt was implemented and contested for last week between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee. You know, who wouldn't want to see the third fight?

Dana White revealed earlier on in Friday's Michael Bisping vs Georges St-Pierre press conference that the Ferguson scrap makes flawless sense for McGregor.

While the possibility of a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz still lingers, as it is considered the fight that will make McGregor the most money, UFC President Dana White has come out and stated that the only fight that makes sense moving forward is McGregor vs. Ferguson. White sent McMahon a link regarding Conor working with WWE and Vince simply responded with "News to me". After the fight, Ferguson went on a profantiy-ridden tirade challenging McGregor to a fight.

But coach John Kavanagh tweeted this after the fighter's tweet, apparently agreeing with the champion's decision.

"What (McGregor) needs to do is defend or vacate", he said. I mean compared to what UFC rules state, he's got a year to start defending his belt. If he wants to fight again, the earliest would likely be August 2018. I think his cardio and pace are fantastic.

UFC 219 takes place December 30, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
