Tony Ferguson is one of the most talked-about fighters in the world of MMA. His ever aggressive fighting style, highly ambiguous training videos and hilarious trash talk are forever a treat to MMA fans and content creators.
However, it is not the best of times to be an "El Cucuy" fan. After his bout with Khabib got cancelled for the 5th time, he suffered a brutal TKO loss to Justin Gaethje and then a decision loss to Charles Olivera.
Fingers were raised at the farmer interim champ by fans and pundits as he was dominated in both losses. Ferguson has the chance to turn his fortunes around as he will be facing Beneil Dariush on 16th May at UFC 262. Regardless of who wins that one, it is popular to say they don’t come tougher than Tony Ferguson.
