Dana White heaps praise on Tony Ferguson, inspite of UFC 256 reduction
Up right until 2020, UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson was on a 12-fight successful streak. It is one of the longest streaks in UFC heritage without having a shot at the undisputed title.
But then 2020 hit. And like it has been for lots of, 2020 has not addressed Ferguson kindly… at minimum, not in the Octagon.
Ferguson returned at UFC 249 in Could, the place organization president Dana White re-opened the athletics globe from the shutdown attributed to the world wide coronavirus pandemic.
Ferguson shed to Justin Gaethje at UFC 249. It took some time to set up his up coming bout, which finished up remaining a lopsided reduction to Charles Oliveira at UFC 256 this past weekend.
Does that signify Tony Ferguson is on the downslide?
White admitted that when it is achievable that Ferguson may possibly hardly ever return to his old kind, there is no denying his heart and tenacity.
