"You're not gonna win this one" - Tony Ferguson shares theory of what happened to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 209

Tony Ferguson has provided fans with an amusing theory as to why Khabib Nurmagomedov didn’t fight him back at UFC 209.

Four years ago, and in many of the years since, Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov have been regarded as two of the best lightweights on the planet. Between Tony Ferguson's winning streak and the dominance of Khabib Nurmagomedov, it seemed inevitable that the pair would battle it out sooner rather than later - and probably for a UFC title.

At UFC 209, one of the five instances in which their scheduled contest fell through occurred. Khabib Nurmagomedov’s failed weight cut left him in hospital and Tony Ferguson without an opponent in the proposed interim lightweight championship co-main event.

While many have come to accept that Khabib’s weight cut just didn’t go very well, 'El Cucuy' has another theory.

“The Night Ali & Fathead @TeamKhabib Received A Call After My Weight Cut At A Local Boxing Gym In Vegas Said “Tony’s Pissed, He’s Comin’ For Your Fat Ass. You Better Run Khabibi, You’re Not Gonna Win This One.” # UFC209 #TowelGate -CSO- # TiramisuCustardTuesdayze”

The sustained decline of Tony Ferguson

The eccentric nature of Tony Ferguson often made for quite the showcase when he hit his top form inside the octagon. Unfortunately, the former interim champion hasn’t been quite so successful over the last few months.

Also Read

Tony Ferguson went from one of the most exciting winning streaks in UFC history to losing three straight against Justin Gaethje, Charles Oliveira and Beneil Dariush respectively.

One or two wins may vault him back into relevancy in the lightweight division. However, if he loses his next contest, and does so decisively, questions may be raised about his future. Khabib Nurmagomedov, on the other hand, continues to enjoy life after retirement. Mixed martial arts fans continue to discuss who would've won if both men had been able to clash when they were in their primes.

Q&A

When and why did you start training for fighting? I moved away from Michigan when I was 24 in pursuit of finding happiness and finding myself. What I found was an opportunity to keep competing after college wrestling and to put some extra change in my pocket. I always liked being in the spotlight as an athlete. What can I say? I'm a glory hound. After my second pro fight, I quit my day job and decided to give my life a fighting chance. I barely made ends meet by personal training and teaching self defense, but that's what I needed to do to keep my face in the gym 24/7. If you want something bad enough, you have to fight for it. For the first time in my life, things made sense. I'd just get up, train early & hard and lay some hands down to pay the bills. It made it feel like I earned my way doing what "I" wanted to do. I finally found my niche. Mixed Martial Arts as a whole has allowed me to express myself through movement and self-sacrifice. All or Nothing.
What ranks and titles have you held? Former interim UFC lightweight champion, The Ultimate Fighter season 13 winner. 3x Michigan High School Athletic Association All- State Honors w/ a State Championship my Senior year. 2x Collegiate All-American via Grand Valley State University, black belt in BJJ
Do you have any heroes? Mr. Big Guns Upstairs...GOD, and Dan Gable
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the world to me!!! I've never wanted anything so bad in my life. I've had my ups and downs in life, and, no matter what, I always found myself always making it through all right. I'm blessed to be able to keep competing. It's my dream and my destiny to show the whole world what I can do, what I am capable of physically and mentally.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I attended Central Michigan University and Muskegon Community College, and then found my way to Grand Valley State University. At the time, I didn't know what I wanted to be (I switched majors from Physical Therapy to Criminal Justice to Nursing), so I decided I would wait to finish my degree. I know now, though, and plan on re-enrolling in the fall to finish what I started!
What was your job before you started fighting? I've had a lot of jobs, but the one I had for the longest time was being a Bartender. I loved my job and loved being around so many people. I heard everyone's life story, and I was able to be hospitable and have a good time.
Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 22 second KO in my first and only ammy Fight!
Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Pure Combat 170lbs Welterweight World Champion Belt Holder. I also made TUF history, I guess, with the 1st Upkick KO in my 1st Ultimate Fighter showing!
Favorite grappling technique: Ankle pick, and low singles baby!!!
Favorite Striking technique: Left Hook, Right Cross!!! Back ta back!

Tony Ferguson vs Anthony Pettis HD Highlights

Gaethje Says Tony Ferguson Is Not Done, “He’ll Never Be Broken”

Justin Gaethje has changed his opinion on the future of Tony Ferguson‘s career.

Justin Gaethje was almost ready to write Tony Ferguson off after he beat him at UFC 249 but something has changed. In the lead-up to his fight with Michael Chandler, Gaethje has given Ferguson a little praise for being a very tough opponent. Gaethje was recently a guest on the UFC Unfiltered podcast when he was asked about his thoughts on champion Charles Oliveira. He credits Ferguson with giving Oliveira his toughest task.

“He (Oliveira) fought eight in a row. But at the end of the day, Tony Ferguson was the best win on that streak by far,” Gaethje said. “And it was after I put him through 24 minutes and 15 seconds of straight hell. And I didn’t break him. He’s not done. The dude’s a special kind of dude, so he’ll never be broken.”

This is a 180 of where Gaethje was just a few months ago. After their fight, Gathje has basically called for Ferguson to hang up his gloves. In fact, Gaethje said the Ferguson would “never be the same” after his fifth-round TKO loss to Gaethje. Since that loss, Ferguson has fought two more times, both unanimous decision losses.

It is unclear if Ferguson is going to fight again in the UFC. Although his peers have called for his retirement, Ferguson has no plans for that at this time. However, if he is planning a return it might be difficult considering the UFC cannot contact him. Ferguson has always been one of the more unusual and unique fighters on the roster but that is what makes him a fan favorite. He is still ranked #6 in the division and could possibly find his way back to a title shot with a few good wins.

Do you think Tony Ferguson still has what it takes to be competitive in the UFC at this point in his career?

Tony Ferguson

This article is about the mixed martial arts fighter. For the skateboarder, see Tony Ferguson (skateboarder).

American MMA fighter

Anthony Armand Ferguson Padilla[5] (born February 12, 1984) is an American professional mixed martial artist. He currently competes in the Lightweight division for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is a former Interim UFC Lightweight Champion. Ferguson has been competing professionally since 2008, and has been with the UFC since he won The Ultimate Fighter 13. In addition to his wrestling background, Ferguson has also trained boxing, jiu-jitsu,[2]muay thai,[6] and wing chun.[7] As of October 4, 2021, he is #7 in the UFC lightweight rankings.[8]

Early life[edit]

Ferguson was born in Oxnard, California, on February 12, 1984, but grew up mainly in Muskegon, Michigan. He is of Mexican heritage. His surname of Ferguson comes from his Scottish American stepfather.[9][10]

Ferguson was a three-sport athlete at Muskegon Catholic Central High School in American football, baseball, and wrestling. He was the starting defensive back for the 2000 Division 8 state football champions and was a three-time All-State selection in wrestling, winning the 152-lb division in 2002.

After high school, Ferguson enrolled at Central Michigan University before transferring to Grand Valley State University. He also did a stint at Muskegon Community College. He did not complete his degree, but had a successful collegiate wrestling career, winning the 2006 National Collegiate Wrestling Association national wrestling championship in the 165-lb division.[4]

Following college, Ferguson moved back to California to be closer to his extended family, working in marketing and sales during the day and picking up shifts as a bartender at night. One night, while working a bar shift, a patron noticed Ferguson's cauliflower ear and struck up a conversation about his wrestling background. The patron was a trainer at a local MMA gym and invited him to work with some young mixed martial artists on their wrestling. Shortly after this, he decided to pursue a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Ferguson began his professional MMA career fighting in small organizations around California in 2007. Notable matches in his early career include a win over kickboxing champion Joe Schilling and a loss to future World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) fighter Karen Darabedyan.

The Ultimate Fighter[edit]

Ferguson applied to compete in the UFC's reality series The Ultimate Fighter multiple times. In 2010, he was finally accepted to compete in season 13 of the series after amassing a 10-2 professional record and winning the welterweight championship in PureCombat. He competed as a welterweight on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos.

Ferguson was selected as the third pick for Team Lesnar. In his first fight, Ferguson defeated Justin Edwards by knockout in the first round. He next faced Ryan McGillivray in the quarterfinals and won by a TKO in the first round. He then faced Chuck O'Neil in the semifinals and won by TKO in the third round to advance to the final.[11]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Ferguson officially made his UFC debut at the Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale against Ramsey Nijem to determine the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 13. Ferguson defeated Nijem by knockout in the first round to win a UFC contract. He also received the Knockout of the Night bonus.[12]

Following his debut, Ferguson returned to lightweight and faced Aaron Riley on September 24, 2011, at UFC 135. The fight was stopped after the first round after Riley said he had a broken jaw, resulting in a TKO victory for Ferguson.[13]

A rematch with Michael Johnson was briefly scheduled for March 5, 2016, at UFC 196.[39] However, on January 27, it was announced that Johnson withdrew from the bout due to injury.

Ferguson fought former champion Rafael dos Anjos on November 5, 2016, at the Ultimate Fighter Latin America 3 Finale.[48] He won the fight by unanimous decision. Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night, which gave Ferguson his sixth post-fight bonus in his past five fights.[49][50]

The pairing with Nurmagomedov was scheduled for a third time at UFC 209, this time for the interim UFC Lightweight Championship.[51] However, prior to the weigh-ins for the event, Nurmagomedov was hospitalized due to the ill effects of his weight cut, and the bout was cancelled yet again.[52]

Ferguson faced Kevin Lee on October 7, 2017, at UFC 216 for the interim UFC Lightweight Championship. He won the bout by triangle choke submission in the third round.[53][54]

A bout with Nurmagomedov had been scheduled for the fourth time on April 7, 2018, at UFC 223.[55] However, on April 1, 2018, Ferguson reportedly tore his fibular collateral ligament while walking on the set for a pre-fight media obligation and was forced to withdraw from the event.[56][57]

Ferguson faced Anthony Pettis on October 6, 2018, at UFC 229.[58] He won the bout via corner stoppage after two rounds.

Ferguson next faced Donald Cerrone on June 8, 2019, at UFC 238.[61] He won the fight via TKO due to a doctor stoppage after Cerrone blew his nose between rounds 2 & 3 which caused his swollen right eye to completely close, rendering him unable to continue.[62] This fight earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.[63]

Ferguson was scheduled to face Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC Lightweight Championship on April 18, 2020 at UFC 249, but after Nurmagomedov was unable to leave Russia due to restricted air travel as a result of the coronavirus pandemic,[64] Ferguson then agreed to compete for the Interim UFC Lightweight Championship against a late replacement in Justin Gaethje at the event.[65] However, on April 9, Dana White, the president of UFC announced that this event was postponed[66] and the bout eventually took place on May 9, 2020.[67] He was outstruck by Gaethje for all five rounds, eventually losing the fight via TKO in the fifth round.[68] This fight earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.[69]

Ferguson faced Charles Oliveira on December 12, 2020 at UFC 256.[70] He lost the fight via unanimous decision after being mostly dominated and controlled on the ground for most of the fight.[71]

Ferguson faced Beneil Dariush on May 15, 2021 at UFC 262. He lost the fight via unanimous decision after again being controlled on the ground for the majority of the match.

Personal life[edit]

Ferguson has a son, Armand Anthony, with his wife, Cristina Ferguson.[72] In March 2019, Cristina filed a restraining order against Ferguson, alleging uncharacteristic behavior such as severe paranoia, not sleeping for days, tearing apart their home fireplace, and believing that a tracking chip was inserted into his leg during reconstructive knee surgery. Ferguson's wife, however, did not claim any form of abuse or violence from Ferguson and claims that she filed the restraining order as a precautionary measure to get Ferguson the necessary help for his mental state.[73][74] In April 2019, Ferguson's wife had dropped the restraining order, and it was revealed that Ferguson would resume fighting.[75]

Ferguson is known as one of MMA's most eccentric personalities.[76] He constructed his own custom training apparatus at his house in Big Bear Lake, California and regularly posts videos of his unique workouts on his personal Instagram page. These include using a wing chun dummy[77] smacking his arms and legs against metal poles to build bone strength, throwing baseballs off a pitchers' mound to build power for right-hand punches, swinging a hammer while balanced on a gym ball, and somersault jumps over tall stacks of gym mats.[78][79] Fellow fighters have regularly commented on these unorthodox routines, and other fighters such as Belal Muhammad have even parodied Ferguson's training videos on their own personal social media pages.[80] Ferguson has written on his Twitter account that he eschews sparring in training as he "finds it limits my creativity" when fighting.[81]
