UFC 229 marked the comeback of Tony ‘el cucuy’ Ferguson after one year. This is the first fight of Tony Ferguson after the knee injury he suffered this A\npril.
And what an impressive comeback. He made Anthony Pettis move at his own pace which Pettis clearly failed to match.
It was a bloody battle until Anthony Pettis was rendered unable to continue at the end of the second round after suffering a broken hand. The fight also won the ‘Fight of the Night’ award.
At the post-fight press conference, Tony looked sharp as he came wearing a suit. Ferguson talked about his recovery and also about the post-fight brawl.
Mentioning both Khabib and Conor he said,” these two knuckleheads over there making this sport look bad.”
Tony also said, ”Nobody wants to be trapped inside that cage with me. They don’t want to get killed by my elbows. They don’t want to get hit by any of my kicks and they don’t want to get their conditioning checked by me. I’m a different animal than these guys. They want to be animals inside there, I’m a dogcatcher guys.”
On being asked whether Conor deserve a rematch, Tony said, ”Rematch? The dude got finished.”
“Dude got straight up finished. If you got finished, you need to move the f**k on.”
