Former interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje doesn’t think Tony Ferguson be one of the best in the division in the past. For him, the rivals who faced him already entered at a disadvantage. Besides that, the American finds it difficult to “El Cucuy” rebound after the damage suffered in their fighting.

“They would go, fight in desperation and refuse to create spaces. I don’t know why Pettis and Cerrone weren’t able to do what I did. But I think it was obvious all this time ”, he claimed Gaethje, in an interview with ESPN.

After beating him in UFC 249 to be crowned interim champion of the division, Justin gaethje ended a 12-game win streak Tony Ferguson. He considers that the absence of an audience in the arena influenced his fight.

“That the fans weren’t in the arena helped me keep my focus and focus on what was happening in the Octagon. That is a huge factor when you are fighting against Tony. I don’t think I’m finished, but I also don’t think I’m an elite lightweight. It never was. The skills only worked because of the way the people were fighting in front of him. “declared the American.

Ferguson, beat names like Anthony Pettis, Donald Cerrone Y Rafael Dos Anjos, in real fighting inside the Octagon. Thus, Justin gaethje believes that “El Cucuy” you will have difficulties in the future.

“I was impressed with Do Bronx, but Tony was not the same person. No one is going to be the same person after taking so many blows to the face. You fight with less confidence, that becomes dangerous. Now, his lack of confidence will be a crucial factor in his next fights ”, concluded.
