Tony Ferguson Training by Dodging Laser Beams


Top UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov is 24-0, the last eight in the UFC. #2 contender Tony Ferguson’s record is if anything even more spectacular. ‘El Cucuy’ is on a nine-fight win streak, and won six performance bonuses in his last five fights. Each of his last three fights was the Fight of the Night.

The pair will fight at UFC 209, on March 4, 2017, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the interim UFC Lightweight Championship. Both fighters are hard at work for the fight of their lives, and Ferguson has gone beyond the conventional.

Luckily, Stormtroopers always miss. That’s a rule.

Fighters also train their defense continuously, but defense doesn’t always work – sometimes you get hit. So El Cucuy let’s himself get hit, in a sort of reverse sparring. He also does some peaceful pad punching in a park, deadlifting in a sombrero, wild Turkish get ups with a cannonball, dragging a friend around, fun on the jungle gym, gymnastics, dodging pool floaties, and more

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
