Tony Ferguson needs the support of the MMA community right now. He’s going through the mill with mental health issues and we all are hoping he can get the help he needs…
The sport of MMA can see fights full with full bitter rivalry at times. This kind of beef fill feud at to the excitement of the match and this is something that the UFC is built upon. And so we constantly see the high level diss and rap off at the weigh-in and press conferences between fighters. However it no surprise that the fighter we see on camera is a lot different to who they are off camera in so call real life.
Many of these fighters fight their own internal demons as so to speak and struggles that are often hidden away from the fancy lights, cameras, and spectators of the octagon. Unfortunately for ex-interim lightweight champ Tony Ferguson, this fight is very real his issues are with personal demons.
