Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping believes Tony Ferguson’s best years are behind him and hopes that there is someone around the lightweight who can explain it.
“Justin Gaethje interrupted him in a standing position, and Charles Oliveira was declassing to the ground,” said Briton Michael Bisping in another episode of his podcast. “It is clear that he does not need my care, but I am a little worried about Tony Ferguson.”
“We are seeing Tony Ferguson drop rapidly because the human body is unable to endure indefinitely. Tony is a real fighter and an absolute warrior – he showed many sensational performances, but often he won due to the fact that he could survive more damage than his opponent. It is spectacular and brings bonuses, but there is a limit to everything. “
“Tony is not the kind of guy to say to himself, ‘It’s time to end this because I took too much damage.’ Most likely, he will say, ‘I’m fine and I lost because I made mistakes in training camp.’ He never admits to himself that he began to fail. This often happens to fighters – they don’t want to accept it. So they need someone else – a manager, a loved one, a wife, a coach, a friend, a UFC president – who will tell him, ‘Tony, you took too much damage.’ Someone has to open his eyes to what is happening to him. Because on paper, these are only two defeats, and he can continue, as in 2012, but the fact is that this time the damage that he received in his career is starting to catch up. “
