Tony Ferguson fought Michael Chandler at UFC 274 on May 7 inside the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. The hype around the fight was massive due to the reputation of both the fighters being absolute warriors. In the fight, Chandler dropped Ferguson in the second round with a nasty kick to the chin. It was so bad that Ferguson lay there for a few minutes before regaining consciousness.

The knockout looked extremely brutal and many thought that it was the end of Ferguson’s career as an MMA fighter. Ferguson is currently 38 years old and at this age, it’s hard to get back to form after getting hit like that. But Ferguson later claimed that he is not going to retire and has unfinished business inside the octagon.
