So, perhaps you suppose Ferguson can be on the identical path, particularly after struggling his first KO defeat to Chandler. However a message from his spouse helped him understand that it wasn’t age or time within the sport that was taking part in a job in these performances.
“My spouse tells me, ‘When are you going to begin coaching 100%,’” Ferguson mentioned, “I haven’t educated 100% in years…I sparred for the primary time in about 5, six years. So, I’ve accomplished a variety of issues and brought myself out of my consolation zone. Which is straightforward for me, however a variety of different folks, they don’t anticipate it. So, I saved [my best tricks] like a magician for a really very long time, for the instances that matter essentially the most. And that’s now.”
Not solely is now the appropriate time to begin getting again within the win column, but in addition to seek out essentially the most success in a brand new problem, unfamiliar as of late, that Ferguson is being offered on Saturday evening. At UFC 279, Ferguson might be competing at 170 kilos for this primary time in 11 years.
On The Final Fighter 13, Ferguson fought and gained the competitors at welterweight, however as soon as he was signed to the UFC, it appeared clear that he’d discover essentially the most success at light-weight. From then on, it was 155 kilos for all 19 UFC fights.
