Tony Ferguson is known for his wild style both in and out of the octagon. 'El Cucuy' recently got into trouble in Houston, Texas, for going on a run past midnight.
In the first episode of UFC 262 Embedded, Tony Ferguson was seen going on a run at 1 AM. While on the run, Tony and his team reach a certain area when a voice shouts,
"Hey! Lake Lounge is secure for 12 and under."
The next shot is of Ferguson smiling and running towards the camera, saying,
"We're getting in trouble, we gotta jam out!"
Without a pause, 'El Cucuy' and his team continued running in a different direction.
Tony Ferguson is famous for his unorthodox training methods and his creative approach to fighting. While all the athletes in the hotel seemed to be resting at 1 AM, Ferguson decided to go on a run. The team most likely wandered into a closed area that was either not meant for adults or not open to access past 12 AM, judging by the warning that came their way.
This wasn't the only thing Ferguson did differently than all the other athletes featured in Episode 1 of UFC 262 Embedded. Everyone seems to have flown into Houston, Texas, but Tony Ferguson and his team drove down from California. It could not have been easy because the journey is over 1500 miles. 'El Cucuy' spoke about how they got weird looks at gas stations on the way because Tony, being himself, found ways to workout at rest stops.
