Tony Ferguson Dismisses Retirement Talk After Seventh Straight UFC Loss

Tony Fergusonotherwise known as ‘El Cucuy,’ has shut down retirement suggestions following his loss to Paddy Pimblett.

Ferguson was targeting a fight with Conor McGregor if he came out victorious, but he suffered a seventh loss in a row at UFC 296 via a unanimous decision. His last win was in 2019 against Donald Cerrone at UFC 238. Before the Pimblett fight, Dana White wanted to see Ferguson walk away from the sport. Following the loss, the CEO of the UFC doubled down on those claims.

“I would love to see Tony retire. When you talk about a skid, you look at the guys he fought, too. That plays a factor into it and how did he look right up until he lost? Tony tonight looked like he should retire. Listen, Tony’s been an absolute warrior and a dog in this sport. I don’t want to disrespect him by publicly talking about him retiring but I would love to see him retire. That’s really where my head’s at,” White said

Despite the defeat, he still has plans on fighting.
