Last weekend, Tony Ferguson lost a unanimous decision to Charles Oliveira. This is the first time that ‘El Cucuy’ has lost back to back fights in his UFC career. Making him 0-2 in 2020, and he has not won a round across either fight.
After the fight, Dana White stated that he believes it’s possible Tony Ferguson’s best days are behind him. However, Ferguson disagreed, responding to Dana White that he shouldn’t count on it.
