Ferguson Claims ‘Extra Clearance’ Isn’t Wanted, White Disagrees

After busting his ass and doing his personal rehab on an injured knee, Tony Ferguson returned to motion at UFC 229 and utterly wrecked Anthony Pettis — an additional spectacular feat contemplating Pettis went on to knock out Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in his subsequent combat. However simply as “El Cucuy” was getting again into the light-weight contender’s circle, catastrophe struck once more.

Experiences of police visits and restraining orders from his spouse surfaced. She claimed he was tearing aside their home trying to find hidden cameras, that he had a pc chip embedded underneath his pores and skin. The person was clearly scuffling with psychological well being points, and luckily it feels like he’s gotten assist since then. However only one month later, is he able to compete once more?

Tony actually thinks so.

However UFC president Dana White wasn’t so positive following UFC 236.

“I don’t know if Tony’s able to combat,” White mentioned on the post-fight press convention. “I don’t know if that’s completely correct. As a result of we haven’t had anyone consider him but.”

That’s an announcement that Ferguson appears to disagree with. He took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to contradict White’s feedback.

”I used to be supplied a combat final week earlier than UFC 236,” he wrote (de-Ferg’d for simpler studying). “Guess who? Which means I don’t want extra clearance.”

It’s unclear whether or not the UFC is definitely providing Ferguson fights, or if that is simply extra fifth dimension social media promotion on the a part of “El Cucuy,” who could also be simply attempting to get his identify again within the dialogue. However regardless, we predict there’s positively going to be extra extra clearances wanted earlier than Tony returns to the cage, and rightfully so.

We actually hope he passes all of the checks with flying colours when the time is true. It’s pure to wish to rush issues, however this isn’t most sports activities the place a foul efficiency is only a blemish on the report. The UFC wants to verify Ferguson is again in a superb place, so he proceed to be his extraordinary self within the combat recreation for years to come back.
