Tony Ferguson Trains for Khabib Nurmagomedov
UFC lightweight El Cucuy Tony Ferguson getting ready to face Russian Sambo phenom Khabib Nurmagomedov in their upcoming UFC lightweight bout. Ferguson has been on a tear in recent times and will look to continue that when he faces the man from Daghestan.
The Russian fighter is returning after a very long lay off due to injury and will be looking to pick up where he left off, in the contender role! Ferguson has other plans as he will look to make a definitive statement and shut down Khabib’s wrestling with his own unique style.
And it is something which he has become both revered and reviled for. As this own unique style has actually led to Tony injuring himself in the buildup to at least one of his fights vs Khabib.
So while the training that he undergoes may very well have its benefits. There is also always a very strong possibility that somewhere along the way el Cuccuy may injure himself pre-fight.
So let’s take a closer look at the man himself as he goes through the paces. And while the Tony Ferguson workout regime may not make its way into many fitness plans.
There is no denying the benefits he believes it has given him in his preparations to fight the very best in the world. Whether or not he ever gets to face Khabib Nurmagomedov at some point is a very different matter.
