Tony Ferguson has no plans to retire after third loss in a row, declares ‘now I’m pissed’ as he seeks to end streak

Esther Lin, MMA FightingTony Ferguson isn’t going anywhere but back to the gym in order to correct the mistakes that led to his current three-fight losing streak. The former interim lightweight champion suffered another setback at UFC 262 after he was thoroughly dominated by Beneil Dariush over three rounds in the co-main event. The loss put Ferguson at 0-3 in his past three appearance inside the octagon after falling to Justin Gaethje and Charles Oliveira in 2020. While there’s certainly no shame in falling to the new UFC lightweight champion, as well as two fighters currently ranked in the top five at 155 pounds, Ferguson’s performances have seen him only win a single round during any of those bouts. That said, Ferguson refuses to give up much less end his career on a three-fight losing streak as he made clear in a post to his Instagram account following the clash with Dariush this past Saturday night. “Retire and give these [motherf*ckers] a break?” Ferguson wrote. “No, I don’t think so, not on my watch. Now I’m pissed.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by @TonyFergusonxt (@tonyfergusonxt) Ferguson had made significant changes in his most recent training camp, which included the addition of famed boxing coach Freddie Roach, who was in his corner for the fight against Dariush. Unfortunately, Ferguson spent the better part of 15 minutes on his back as he defended takedowns and constant grappling attacks from Dariush. He also got caught in a brutal heel hook in the second round that could have easily shredded his knee, although he refused to tap out from the submission. Judging by his demeanor after the fight, it doesn’t appear Ferguson suffered any major injuries in his knee but there’s been no official word on his health after the event. For now, it appears Ferguson is resolute in his decision to continue fighting as he seeks to break out of the current funk that has him sitting on a three-fight losing streak after rattling off 12 wins in a row in the lightweight division.
