Conor McGregor shows support to Tony Ferguson: ‘Come back stronger than ever’

Conor McGregor is backing Tony Ferguson through what are some clearly difficult times for the former interim UFC lightweight champion.

Over the past few days some details about Ferguson’s (24-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) life outside the cage have emerged, including a judge granting a restraining order preventing Ferguson from seeing his wife and son after allegations of a long line of troublesome behavior.

The situation with Ferguson is still developing, but former two division UFC champ McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) clearly caught wind of what was happening and decided to take to social media to voice support for his fellow athlete (via Twitter):

Tony Ferguson is the type of guy that when all the chips are down, can pick them right back up again and come back stronger than ever!
Came back from a debilitating injury in record time to give us one of the fights of the year!
Let’s go Tony!!

McGregor has been dealing with some issues of his own outside of a competitive fighting setting over the past week, but “The Notorious” is obviously still conscious of what is going on with his fellow athletes.

McGregor and Ferguson are both represented by Paradigm Sports, and “El Cucuy” has been angling for a matchup with the Irishman for more than year.

With plenty to handle in their personal lives, it’s unknown when Ferguson or McGregor could return to octagon, but McGregor has made it clear he hopes the best for his fellow fighter.
