Only few MMA fighters strike fear into the hearts of opponents like Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson. Ever since battling all the way to the top of the UFC’s reality series “The Ultimate Fighter” in 2011, the mixed martial arts icon from Oxnard, California has emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the Octagon. Considered one of the UFC’s greatest lightweight fighters of all time, Ferguson mixes a strong wrestling background with lethal boxing, jiu-jitsu, muay thai, and wing chun skills. Plus, an uncanny ability to sense weakness and go in for the kill at the right moment, which has earned Ferguson a dominant legacy of submissions and TKOs during his pro career. Not to mention countless bonuses for best fight, knockout and submission of the night, as well as 2018’s Fight of the Year against Anthony Pettis at the World MMA Awards. Upright or on the mat, Ferguson can go blow-for-blow with the best on the circuit and already held the interim UFC Lightweight Championship to prove it. Now he still wants that official belt and the title ‘Real King of Lightweight’. Watch closely as the carnage continues.
