Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson is an original in every sense. From his outlandish personality, to his barrel roll attacks in the octagon. The former interim champ has proven to be dangerous both standing with slicing elbows and on the ground with submission attacks from everywhere. He may not be the most lucid public speaker, but he is crystal clear with his actions in a fight. He wants to punish you. To the body, to the head, he puts a pace on opponents that is yet to be matched.

Consistent offense can also be dangerous in a fight, however Ferguson negates this with his granite chin and cardio for all five rounds. We’ve seen Ferguson rocked in fights, but it usually ends with Ferguson getting a second wind and making the opponent pay when they attempt to close the show.

The Boogie Man has one of the largest UFC fan bases today and for good reason. Every Tony Ferguson fight is a display of violence like no other, and has never disappointed. Betting against Ferguson is usually a bad idea as his weaknesses are small and few between. From the ground to standing, Ferguson has an answer.
