Tony Ferguson compares himself to Eminem ahead of Charles Oliveira fight

In a lightweight battle, Tony Ferguson will return to the UFC octagon on December 12th, 2020, against Charles Oliveira.

In one of his recent interviews Ferguson said, “That title’s a wet dream. Like that Farmer’s Insurance commercial, ‘You almost got it, keep it going, we are just going to keep dangling it in front of you.’ I do not know what the problem is. I do not know if it is because I am Mexican. I am an American with Mexican parts. Twelve fight win streak, 8 years in the making before women’s sports were even in the UFC. Conor McGregor was on welfare. All these different things and I still did not earn a title shot.

“But I am still sitting saying f**k the free world, just like Eminem.”

– Tony Ferguson (December 10, 2020)

The most naked I have ever been my whole entire life. I am still here. I am still waiting. I have got the belt in my room. I could go after another belt, but how much greed is that? I have got an Ultimate Fighter trophy. I have got a Fighter’s Only trophy. I have got a UFC belt. I have got medals and I am Lord of the Rings with all my championship rings.” adds ‘El Cucuy’
