Ferguson was due to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov earlier this year before a bizzare injury sidelined the former interim lightweight champion.
With an intriguing set of top tier lightweight fights coming down the line, Tony Ferguson claims that he is set to throw his hat into the mix once again.
Posting on Twitter, Ferguson claims he is “cleared”. He continued, “time for some chaos and reclaim what was mine”.
Ferguson completely tore his left LCL and went into surgery in April. Sources confirmed to MMAJunkie.com that Ferguson’s claim is accurate.
It is unclear when Tony Ferguson will set foot into the Octagon however, the landscape at 155lbs is making for very interesting viewing especially with the imminent return of Conor McGregor.
