Tony Ferguson speaks out on his fallout with Paradigm Sports and how the management company betrayed the lightweight fighter.
The beef between Conor McGregor and Tony Ferguson did not start out because of their rivalry in the sport. The two were first managed by the same sports company named Paradigm Sports Management. Tony had a fallout with the company and switched managers in his career during the year 2019.
In a recent interview with Submission Radio, El Cucuy has brought up the fallout with the company and how things went down between the two parties. According to Ferguson, the management was working behind his back and there was a lot of insider information going on between Paradigm and the UFC. In his recent interview following his loss to Michael Chandler at UFC 274, Ferguson goes all out.
“I’m gonna be real, there’s a lot of underscore things going on between UFC and Paradigm,” said Ferguson talking to Submission Radio. Conor McGregor also plays a huge role in Paradigm Sports management.

“They obviously had a lot of insider information that they were sharing between each other. Even Dana said they f**ked me over. We’re going through some legal things now which is kinda crazy but I can’t talk too much about it,” said El Cucuy in a recent interview about his dispute with his former management.
Following his release from Paradigm management, Tony signed with Ballengee Group to manage his mixed martial arts career. Ferguson has also claimed in the past that his former management company owes him half a million dollars. Ferguson is now set to take things to the hands of the court and battle the company legally.
