Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson have ignited a new Twitter beef which has got pretty heated — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson beef on Twitter
When Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson fought each other last year there was no animosity between the two whatsoever. However, that has now changed as a comment from Gaethje during an interview with ESPN has got Ferguson pretty annoyed.
During Gaethje's interview with ESPN, he mentioned that he believes that Ferguson has "never been an elite lightweight".
This comment from Gaethje did not sit well at all with Ferguson as he took a shot at "The Highlight" on Twitter.
I’ll Give You Elite, Fuck----You @Justin_Gaethje & @CharlesDoBronxs You Didn’t Finish Shit. Told You I’d See You Soon. Crew--Much Easier To See The Targets When They Are In Front. Beyond--Disciplined. New Camp, New Times -Champ -- -CSO- ---------- @CervezaMontejo ThisIsForLaRaza-- pic.twitter.com/RMyBx1ZvKN— Tony Ferguson (@TonyFergusonXT) February 7, 2021
Gaethje then responded.
Charles couldn’t finish you but I certainly did. Check the tape champ. https://t.co/mPwg0tDCGc— Justin Gaethje ---- (@Justin_Gaethje) February 7, 2021
It certainly seems like both men would want to get in the Octagon and fight each other again but a rematch right now seems very unlikely as Ferguson is on a two-fight losing streak.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has given his opinions on who he believes is a "close second" to himself in the MMA GOAT conversation.
