Tony Ferguson is thankful to his fans who still support him despite having strung several losses in a row. UFC lightweight contender promised that he would come back and be as dominating as he was during his peak.
Tony Ferguson experienced a downfall in 2020 after losing against Justin Gaethje. Since then, ‘el cucuy’ suffered another 3 losses against top contenders. During his last bout against Michael Chandler, he received a powerful front kick right on his chin, rendering him fully unconscious.
Many of his fans advised him to just retire already. They believe Ferguson is past his prime. However, some of his fans still have high hopes for him and expect him to show incredible performance again.
Tony Ferguson himself still believes in himself. After reviewing his last fight against Chandler, the 38-year-old felt he still got his touch. He said he had a lot in mind due to some things outside the octagon, and got knocked out by surprise.
“‘Man In The Octagon’ should have finished him in the first round. My fault, I had lots of things going on behind the scenes, but that’s for me won’t let it happen again. 1 Pissed Off Determined Man. Till’ then this is for my crew, thank you, Champ.” Ferguson wrote on Twitter.
