UFC lightweight Tony Ferguson has returned to training following his defeat second successive defeat. ‘El Cucuy’ lost his fight at UFC 256, against Charles Oliveira, but displayed his renowned grit and determination as he battled through adversity.
Ferguson is training to rejuvenate himself in 2021, however, he took some time to engage in some frivolous activities. He posted a clip of him dancing recently on Twitter.
‘El Cucuy’ will look to overturn his disastrous 2020 where he lost consecutive bouts for the first time in his professional career. After suffering a TKO loss to Justin Gaethje at UFC 249, Ferguson was dominated for 3 rounds by Oliveira at UFC 256.
Many believe his powers are on the wane, but Ferguson is determined to prove his doubters wrong. His work ethic and durability still remain unquestionable. Also, there isn’t much to discredit his fighting skills, rather it’s his decisions that have rather let him down over the last year.
After his proposed title fight at UFC 249 against Khabib Nurmagomedov fell out due to coronavirus, Ferguson strangely decided to cut weight. Then he had to go through the rigorous process again three weeks later ahead of UFC 249. Naturally, he looked a slower version of himself against Gaethje.
Furthermore, his decision regarding his support staff proved to be costly at the year’s final PPV.
Ferguson remains one of the very best lightweights ever and has beaten almost everybody on his way to the top. Despite conquering the interim championship, fate has intervened whenever he has come close to undisputed gold.
At 36, Ferguson doesn’t have too many years of fighting left. After his recent setbacks, it looks unlikely he will eventually fight for the title. But with a fighter like Ferguson, anything is on the cards. Fans can only hope he returns triumphant in 2021 and dance in the cage following a monumental win.What do you make of Tony Ferguson’s recent dance video? Let us know down below.
