When we talk about the most exciting fighters in the UFC lightweight history it will be difficult not to bring Tony Ferguson’s name into the mix. Tony Ferguson has been one of the fan favorites in UFC since his debut in 2011.
El Cucuy won the Ultimate Fighter Season 14 with a first-round knockout in the finale. Though Ferguson would suffer a few early defeats in his UFC career he would go on to become the interim lightweight champion.
Tony Ferguson is currently on a three-fight losing streak and his last two fights were not as exciting as his previous fights. However, every time Tony Ferguson enters the arena fans can’t help but cheer for the former interim lightweight champion.

You never know what to expect when Tony Ferguson is standing across you inside the octagon. El Cucuy has had some incredible battles in UFC such as his fight against Anthony Pettis, Edson Barboza, Rafael Dos Anjos, and Kevin Lee.
However, the recent losses have certainly raised questions about Ferguson’s future in UFC. He has lost to top UFC lightweights such as Charles Oliveira, Beneil Dariush, and Justin Gaethje. Against Oliveira and Dariush, Ferguson was not able to win a single round.
