“I used to not get hit” Tony Ferguson wrote. “Then I changed things up a bit. [I] had to figure it out after getting hit more and more each fight. [I] Decided not to take anymore unnecessary damage [and] made the mandatory changes.”
“[I] Promised My Faith/Family/Friends I would not take damage like the last few fights” Ferguson continued. When a corner of mine wouldn’t work on simple slip drills I knew I had to make changes. When a cornerman forgot water during the round mid fight I knew I had to make changes.”
“I got sick and tired of being sick and tired, I did something about it” Tony Ferguson proclaimed. “Quit bitchin’ & went to work. Lots of cool things coming up, [I’ve] been working hard.”
Tony Ferguson’s next fight has not yet been officially confirmed, however the UFC veteran will be looking to come back with a bang.
