UFC No. 1-ranked lightweight contender Tony Ferguson took a shot at Conor McGregor on Twitter, saying he’d love to connect his right hand to McGregor’s chin.
Ferguson’s tweet Tuesday indicated that he wants a shot at McGregor, although he referred to the former champion as a “Replica Of A Former Self.”

McGregor, who is suspended until April 6, tweeted a vague response in which he referred to himself as “Burger King.”
If we have the ability to go back, Tony. Then we have the ability to go forward again!
I wish you well and am praying for you as a fellow colleague.
Respect to my Paradigm familia.
Yours sincerely, Burger King. https://t.co/71YwROhTbo

Ferguson, who has never fought McGregor, responded with another shot, tweeting that McGregor is more like a “Dairy Queen.”
