Tony Ferguson is in the midst of the biggest losing streak of his career. Last weekend, he officially gone from a twelve fight win streak, to a three fight losing streak, at the hands of Beneil Dariush.
After which, fans and others around the organization weren’t sure on ‘El Cucuy’ and his future in the UFC. Given that he has not won a round in his last three fights, questions of retirement were asked of him. Those questions were even asked of UFC President, Dana White, who commented after:
“He had a tough night, I don’t know. We’ll see what happens,” Dana White told Oscar Willis.
Tony Ferguson wasn’t interviewed after his loss, but has now broken his silence via Twitter, where he states that he will not be retiring:

It looks like we’ll see Tony Ferguson back inside the octagon again and maybe even before the year is up. However, his UFC ranking has only dropped to #6, so he likely won’t be getting any favors from the matchmakers.
- Usman on breaking Covington’s jaw being “probably” one of the favorite moments in his career.

- Dana White: “Imagine Chandler and Gaethje… that’d be a fun fight.”
- Tony Ferguson: “I’m competing regularly again… don’t count me out.”
