By FCF Staff
After UFC 249 was postponed, Tony Ferguson reported he was still going to make championship weight, and “El Cucuy” has done just that.
Ferguson was booked to fight Justin Gaethje on April 18th at the Tachi Palace Resort and Casino in California. The lightweights were to battle for an interim lightweight title.
But, after various officials spoke out against the UFC holding an event in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the event was postponed.
“El Cucuy” said he was still going to make 155 pounds, and recently the video below was shared out.
