All roads seem to lead to a potential title unification fight between UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and UFC Interim Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson.
Daniel Cormier is the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and he feels that if the title unifier were to happen, the interim champ would be sniped by the Irish star.
“I think he’s really good. I think his cardio and pace are fantastic. I believe he makes some mistakes that would really cost him against Conor,” Cormier said on Talk & Talker. “Oh my goodness, do you see how high he’s holding his chin up when he’s throwing punches. You do that against McGregor, you’re getting sniped. You’re getting sniped!”
That comment lead to a spat on Twitter between the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and the UFC Interim Lightweight Champion.

It is highly unlikely that these two will ever fight besides the occasional Twitter argument since there is a 50 pound weight difference in the weight classes they normally compete at.
