Tony Ferguson Wont Retire Yet: ‘I’m Still The F—king Champ’..
Welcome back to Sports Collective, today on the channel we are going to discuss details about Tony Ferguson will retire when ready: ‘I’m still the f—king champ’ + other related news. Tony Ferguson doesn’t care what critics are starting to say about him and his career. It’s been a tough past two years for the former interim Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight titleholder. After amassing a stellar 12-fight win streak in the promotion, Ferguson’s fortune reversed starting in May 2020, losing five straight.
“El Cucuy” recently came under fire from Daniel Cormier, suggesting it’s time for him to retire after a recent UFC 279 fourth round guillotine loss to Nate Diaz (watch highlights). However, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 winner isn’t going to let anyone say when he’s done. “When I feel like I’m ready to retire, I will retire,” Ferguson told ESPN (h/t MMA Junkie). “But right now it’s a little bit different, a little bit more interesting. ‘DC’ and all these commentators that just keep repeating the same s—t in the past couple of years — because that’s what they want me to do. They want the public eye to see me like that and they want to see me as a quitter and so on and so forth.” Ferguson’s last appearance came at 170 pounds where he originally entered the promotion. Going forward, it will be interesting to see if he’ll stay at the weight or try and give his primary weight class, Lightweight, another go. Meanwhile, Brandon Gibson looks ‘forward to taking that next step together’ with Tony Ferguson after UFC 279. Brandon Gibson still plans on being a part of Tony Ferguson’s camps moving forward. The renowned striking coach, who works with the likes of former UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones and top prospect Aaron Pico, trained Ferguson in the lead-up to his fight at UFC 279 earlier this month. Watch till the end to know more on Tony Ferguson will retire when ready and other related news.
