Conor McGregor wishes Tony Ferguson a happy birthday, Ferguson responds
Conor McGregor seems to be back to his old ways. "The Notorious" has wished Tony Ferguson a happy birthday but unless autocorrect has let him down, it wasn't with the best of intentions.

"El Cucuy" has responded himself to McGregor, making his feelings clear on him. The pair have a history as they both were under the same management for a period of time before Ferguson departed.
