One year ago Tony Ferguson was on a 12 fight winning streak in the UFC’s toughest division and was about to headline UFC 249 against Justin Gaethje for the Lightweight Championship. Tony Ferguson a fan favorite for years under the UFC banner took his first loss in devastating fashion against Gaethje. However, Tony stayed around the title picture when he took on surging Charles Oliveira 7 months later. Tony showed his toughness and grit but, still took another loss in devastating fashion once again. Tony Ferguson went 2013 to 2019 never tasting defeat and then in 2020 took two bad losses in a seven month span.
Now we moved the calendar to 2021 and we see “El Cucuy” back in a big co main event spot against tough as nails Beneil Dariush. In the most intriguing question of UFC 262, will Tony find redemption or would the downward spiral continue. Tony comes into the fight as a slight underdog and if the Vegas sharps are right we could possibly see Tony last major fight under the banner.
