Former interim UFC lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson, told his fans about how he always manages to keep himself in great physical shape.
According to the American, it is not a matter of regular training, but a mentality that does not allow him to give up slack.
“When people ask me how I achieved such a great physical shape, I always answer – it’s because I only kneel in Church. This is a mentality. Keep in shape, friends, ” 36-year-old Ferguson wrote on Instagram.
Recall that the last fight Tony Ferguson held in may this year at UFC 249 in Jacksonville, losing a technical knockout in the fifth round to Justin Gaitzhi. In a recent interview, El cucuy stated that he would like to see Conor McGregor or Dustin Porier as his next opponent.
Ray Borg is fired from the UFC
The former UFC lightweight title contender, ray Borg, left the organization’s roster after withdrawing from the bout for the second time in a row before the event.
The news comes a week after Borg dropped out of a bout against Nate Maniss on the day of the weigh-in before UFC Fight Night 173 for an unknown reason. In June, the fighter was supposed to fight with Merab Dvalishvili, but two days before the UFC on ESPN 10 tournament, he refused to fight, returning home due to the illness of his two-year-old son, who suffers from hydrocephalus.
27-year-old ray Borg, who has competed in the UFC since 2014, held 12 fights under the banner of the organization, winning 7 victories and suffering 5 losses. In October 2017, Borg made an unsuccessful attempt to take the lightweight title from Demetrius Johnson, losing to “Mighty Mouse” with an elbow lever in the fifth round.
Daveson Figueredo gave a forecast for the fight with Cody Garbrandt
The current UFC champion in the lightest weight, Daveson Figueredo, who in the next fight will have to go to the defense of the belt against the former UFC title holder in the lightest weight category, Cody Garbrandt, promises not to bring the fight to a judicial decision.
ESPN sports columnist Brett Okamoto reported this with reference to the Brazilian’s Manager.
“Daveson Figueredo’s Manager, Vallid Ismail, told me in a text message that Figueredo wants everyone to know that he promises to knock out Cody Garbrandt. ‘Tell everyone we’ll knock him out’,” the reporter tweeted.
Garbrandt did not ignore his opponent’s lunge.
“He can only hope that he can do it, because I will break him,” the American replied.
We will remind that the title fight in the lightest weight between Daveson Figueredo and Cody Garbrandt will be the main event of the UFC 255 tournament, which will take place on November 21.
