UFC 229 Khabib v McGregor: Weigh-Ins

The word unorthodox doesn’t do a great deal of justice in describing Tony Ferguson. Fight fans see El Cucuy as an enigmatic personality with his ‘freestyle’ in - ring technique and peculiar training methods. Ferguson hasn’t sparred in nearly six years and uses equipment like kicking pipes in his gym. When asked about his training methods, the Boogeyman had this to say -

“It’s actually just having fun with it and not getting bored, asked about his unique approach to training. I come from a three-sport background. I played football, baseball and wrestling, I played three different sports growing up and that really stuck with me.”

Initially starting with local MMA organisations in California, Ferguson was selected to be a part of The Ultimate Fighter season 13. He was a part of Team Lesnar and ended up winning the UFC contract after beating Ramsey Nijem in the finals.

Ferguson was scheduled to fight Li Jingliang in the co-main event of UFC 279 on September 10, 2022, when he was to return to the welterweight division. Ferguson's original opponent, Khamzat Chimaev, withdrew from their fight because he was underweight, so Ferguson instead advanced to the main event to face Nate Diaz. In the fourth round, Ferguson was submitted by guillotine choke, ending the fight.

On July 29, 2023, Ferguson will fight Bobby Green at UFC 291 to make a comeback to the Lightweight division.

What is Tony Ferguson’s Net Worth in 2023?

UFC 229 Khabib v McGregor: Open Workouts

According to FirstSportz, Tony Ferguson’s net worth is estimated to be $3.5 million as of July, 2023.

This estimation was after his loss to Justin Gaethje at UFC 249. Since then, he suffered another loss against Charles Oliveira at UFC 256, which has stained his reputation as a premier level fighter.

With a substantial record of 25 wins and five defeats, Ferguson has been in some high profile bouts. Josh Thomson, Kevin Lee, Donald Cerrone and Rafael dos Anjos are some of the most prolific fights in his career. So far in his UFC tenure, he has collected six Fight of the Night Bonuses and three Performance of the Night bonuses. Ferguson’s twelve (12) fight win streak cemented him as one of the top dogs in the company.

Tony Ferguson is often considered as one of the most underpaid guys in the organisation. After losing to Justin Gaethje, he lashed out on the UFC president Dana White regarding the situation with his payment -

“Chandler? Think about this: How many times are you going to put another (expletive) person in the (expletive) shuffle of the cards?” Ferguson asked. “Dana keeps shuffling me down the list. What? Because I’m (expletive) Mexican? What’s up Dana, you don’t like Mexicans? You don’t like brown people? I’m not going to call you a racist, but what the (expletive), man? What’d I do to you? Why do you treat me like (expletive)? My last name is Ferguson. I don’t want to get mad anymore. I don’t. I’m not going to. But that being said, I said my piece. I’m too busy working."
