]Tony Ferguson opens up about his relationship with his father and revealed what makes him different from others. Ahead of the lead-up to UFC 257, former interim champion Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson shared why he doesn’t like to give interviews and rained down on what he calls “stupid questions” from the public and the media.
“I take notes from my dad. Anytime I would be pitching, I would be throwing. I couldn’t get out of an inning because I was always up here and he knew it. He would tell me something so stupid it would throw me off. I would be like, ‘what the f*** is he saying.'”
Tony Ferguson doesn’t share much about his family. On being asked whether he regrets competing at UFC 249, he revealed that it was for his family. “Nobody pays for my bill,” he said, and rightfully so. In the lead to UFC 249 that was initially supposed to be a battle between Khabib Numrmagomedov and Tony Ferguson, El Cucuy had not fought for over a year. Needless to say, Ferguson’s sole earning income comes from the way of fighting.
