Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor aren’t above playing games when it comes to fight promotion.

Six days after Ferguson submitted Kevin Lee in the main event of UFC 216 to win an interim title, McGregor, the undisputed lightweight champion, took to Twitter to post an image of himself photoshopped onto artwork from the Grand Theft Auto video game series along with a one-word caption that simply read: “Tony”.

“El Cucuy” has been vocal about demanding that McGregor either defend the belt or vacate and walk away. He put together his own Twitter clip in response to McGregor, which was also filled with references to Grand Theft Auto:

McGregor has not made any definitive announcement about what is next for him after his blockbuster boxing match with Floyd Mayweather this past August, so expect there to be more cryptic messages from McGregor, Ferguson, and anyone else looking to get a piece of “The Notorious” until he makes up his mind.
