Straight up assassin.

Women generally don’t have knock out power may be true, but clearly isn’t an absolute statement.

Joe Silva (the old UFC matchmaker) wouldn’t have put that together. When the fight odds are +1600 it’s entering cannon fodder territory

Normally connecting with shots like that the fight is over! No need for great cardio. I've done 5 minute rounds and until you're used to it, it's a bitch plain and simple.
Fast twitch muscle bombers for sure

Tony did not look himself at all that fight. Hoping his new coach staff helps get him back on track. That armbar though!

I think he’s fighting dariush next

I’d like to see him try gatjche or Oliveira again. He’s got to be able to get past them to be the champ and idpf he can’t he’s going to be relegated to the gatekeeper role for future contenders.

I think he should have had Justin's # that first fight. Easy to say from where I sit though. Hopefully hes learned some valuable lessons.

Omg, I totally forgot that Olivera vs Chandler for the belt is coming right up. That ought to be a great fight. Im picking Chandler for that one. Dynamic, explosive, high fight IQ.

He took some HUGE shots from Gaethje! No giving up though. Man, that was a beating!
And only super prideful Brazilians and Tony Ferguson dont tap to having there arm ripped off. Savage.

There is a line I draw for myself. I'm not getting beaten or broken for exercise. A shiner, a smushed nose, I've had that. These men's will and grit is far superior than average.
