Rafael Dos Anjos, a former opponent of “El Cucuy,” initially expressed concern that Goggins’ coaching style might “slow down” Ferguson. While Goggins could enhance mental fortitude, Ferguson, already renowned for his strength, might not derive significant benefits from the “Hell Week.” Sonnen responded to Dos Anjos’ tweet by saying:

Elaborate, champ.  thought the same thing, Goggins had a positive effect, but Tony only has a certain amount of energy and needs to be wise. Tell me more. I wanna hear what you are thinking.

Sonnen’s agreement with dos Anjos represents a common viewpoint among seasoned MMA fighters, who criticize Goggins’ training method for Ferguson. The emphasis appears to be on striking a balance between physical exertion and the requirement for strategic energy management.
