Former UFC fighter and MMA analyst Chael Sonnen has made a positive statement about Tony Ferguson’s upcoming fight against Michael Chandler but fears that Chandler might use his wrestling to stop Tony. Tony Ferguson is currently riding a three-fight losing streak and is facing one of the toughest times in his career. His next fight is against the former UFC lightweight title challenger Michael Chandler at UFC 274. At UFC 274 UFC’s lightweight title will be on the line as the champion Charles Oliveira will be defending his title against the top contender Justin Gaethje.

Chael Sonnen talks about Tony Ferguson

Chael Sonnen in his latest Youtube video made a unique assessment of the matchup between Michael Chandler and Tony Ferguson.

“I do not believe Tony’s best days are behind him, and I don’t think Tony looked rusty in his last fight,” Sonnen said on his YouTube channel. “I did not see a fighter that was underdriven or that had slowed down or that had lost his power, that had lost his timing.”

According to Chael Sonnen, Tony Ferguson can still make a comeback in the stacked lightweight division.

“You can bet your ass Chandler’s not planning to come out and throw lefts and rights all night with Tony,” Sonnen said. “He’s going to throw a left, follow with a right to get close to get to a double leg, to pick him up to put him down because that’s what he saw the last couple of opponents do.”

“I do not subscribe to the idea that Tony Ferguson’s best days are behind him. I don’t even subscribe that Tony looked bad in his last fights. I acknowledge there was a commonalty in those fights, which was one position, and it was wrestling – which happens to be something that Michael Chandler is pretty good at.”

This Fight is an important match for the career of Tony Ferguson which is on a decline. If he losses one more fight then his UFC career might be in jeopardy as in recent times the promotion has been cutting off fighters who are on losing streaks. His fight is against one of the best lightweights in the world Michael Chandler. Chandler last fought Justin Gaethje in the fight of the year match at UFC 268.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Chael Sonnen says Tony Ferguson’s best days are not behind him, but Michael Chandler could expose wrestling
