Former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson had a lively presence on social media early Thursday morning and he took aim at an MMA superstar.

Fans haven’t seen “El Cucuy” inside the Octagon since his lopsided decision loss to Charles Oliveira in December 2020. Prior to that, Ferguson’s 12-fight win streak was snapped by Justin Gaethje when they clashed for the interim lightweight strap in May 2020.

On Thursday morning, Ferguson declared via social media that he’s “back.” El Cucuy wrote, ‘Chicano Dayzed’ I’m Back! Walking Around 180lbs & Full Of Petro. Tactical & Mixing It Up Better Than My Bartending Dayze. We Put In More Work Last Month Than The Whole 1st Half Of Last Year. Know Your Investments. These F****** Are Gonna Get It.”

After that, Ferguson took aim at Nate Diaz, replying to a tweet the fighter put out on February 2. Sharing a photo of himself throwing a hook at a bag, Diaz appeared to have revealed the weight class he wants to compete at next, welterweight. He wrote, “NDA soldier 170 lbs. Come get you some of the real.”

Ferguson replied to Diaz’s tweet, challenging him to a fight at either welterweight or lightweight. El Cucuy wrote, “All You Do Is B**** Out. You Don’t Want No Squabbles From A Real Fighter. 170lbs or 155lbs… SitDown & STFU Casual.”

Diaz hasn’t fought since his losing effort in November 2019 when he fought Jorge Masvidal at 170 pounds for the “Baddest Motherf*****” belt.
