Tony «El Cucuy» Ferguson

The last fight of Tony Ferguson took place on June 8, 2019 against
Ferguson won by technical knockout (TKO).
I don’t have nothing personal with him, you know? Tony is great fighter. Honestly, I don’t like him personally. I don’t understand his mind, what is inside his head but I don’t need this. I’m going to focus on the fight. When the cage closes, I’m going to do my job like always.
The most important thing is that this fight takes place. Four times it was canceled. In social networks appeared memes as they sit with a beard at a press conference. It is also necessary that they both be healthy, without injuries.
Ferguson is a dangerous, but I think Khabib will win. He is physically more powerful, plus his control...
