TONY FERGUSON is one of the UFC’s toughest fighters.
The American star lost his twelve-fight winning streak when beaten by Justin Gaethje in a brutal bout at UFC 249.
But that won’t be the end for the 36-year-old known as the Boogeyman, who has a pro MMA record of 25-4.
What is Tony Ferguson’s net worth?
Ferguson’s loss in Florida was his first since 2012 in the UFC.
Hardly a prolific fighter, he has competed just 13 times in eight years – but has garnered Fight of the Night in five of his last six UFC events.
He’s a big draw in the MMA world, but does’t garner quite the same international reputation as Irish star Conor McGregor.
Notorious is said to be worth upwards of £100million.
While Ferguson’s net worth is estimated by Celebrity Net Worth to be around £1.6million.
McGregor earned more than that just to face Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone back in January, pocketing a cool £2.3m.
In contrast, at UFC 238 a year ago Ferguson took home £121,215 for his TKO victory over the same opponent.
When will Ferguson fight Khabib?
Fight fans have been desperate to see the Boogeyman face the feared Russian star in the Octagon.
But the latest setback – in which Khabib had to pull out due to Covid-19 lockdown – was the FIFTH time a scheduled bout between the pair had to be cancelled.
Khabib and Ferguson were first set to lock horns in 2015.
But it could be some time until we get to see them face off with Ferguson now having to climb his way back up the ladder after his loss to Gaethje.
Khabib will continue training in Dagestan, although he is observing Ramadan until May 23, in preparation for a clash to unify the lightweight title against Gaethje later this year.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the UFC is back.
After the success of UFC 249 behind closed doors, there’s an appetite among fight fans for even more action.
Here are the confirmed events so far this month, with more on the way:
- Wednesday, May 13 – UFC Fight Night – Smith vs Teixeira
- Saturday, May 16 – UFC Fight Night – Overeem vs Harris
- Saturday, May 23 – TBA
