"He looked damn good in that first round. But that was a vicious knockout." White reacted.

White further advises Tony Ferguson to take some time off, and show great belief in El Cucuy's ability to come back. "It's not like, Tony got dominated. Looks like he doesn't event belong here. Tony looked damn good right up until the moment he got caught." White added.

What do you think lies ahead for the 38-year old Tony Ferguson, who seems have nothing going his way since the last four fights.
