  2. Alan Mayfield on December 19, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    The receptive romania superfamily visit because biplane microbiologically detect till a perpetual week. thirsty, better tail

  3. Bobby Himel on December 19, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Tony is a work of art.

  4. LordKira on December 19, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    I don’t think this fight will ever happen now
    it broke my heart to see Ferguson get dismantled the way he did in 256
    as someone who’s been t o the lowest of low but came out successful in life so far (similar age as Ferguson), and since Ferguson is definitely a mentally capable man, I am sure he will find successs in his future paths
    he’s almost 40 and that’s old for an athlete but he’s still very young for a non-athlete

  5. Wolf Racing on December 19, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    Tony type guy lose 8 rounds in a row
    Type guy shits dumb he’s done

  6. Abdullah The Butcher on December 19, 2020 at 9:54 pm

  7. mg Powderly on December 19, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    classy. that foul mouth intimates no one, dummy

  8. Only Gknows on December 19, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    He has kids now and still can’t complete a sentence without F bombs. Tony is the type of dad ….Never mind

  9. Madhurjya Deka on December 19, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    Tony the type of guy to load Valentina Shevchenko into his magazine

  10. Buster 210 on December 19, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    Tony is like luke rockhold n McGregor had a baby

  11. Evan McGee on December 19, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    What… The … Fk… Are… You… Talking… About lol
    I like tony but wow… Dude is really all over the place. You can tell he is hurt he doesn’t get the attention like Conor and Khabib but in same sentence says "it’s cool, I don’t need it"…But then brings it up 23 more times.

  12. Nafiz Mohammad on December 19, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    5:06 was the most odd and awkward thing I’ve ever seen

  13. G Money on December 19, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    I’m here after Tony’s loss 😣😣😪😪
    I think this is the end for him, as a title contender.

  14. Doug Koe on December 19, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Tony took notes but forgot the notes on Saturday

  15. Veronica Sandoval on December 19, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Tony is the only person that can talk for 10.mins straight and not make sense or a single point lmfao

  16. Atif Ismail on December 19, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Tony is a overrated and stupid type of guy actually

  17. Node R on December 19, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    This aged well…

  18. Hashim khabib on December 19, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Who is here after loss 😔

  19. Julian Midgley on December 19, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    He’s slowly turning into Mayhem Miller

  20. Kristian Kosa on December 19, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    Tony’s heart is incredibly huge! He is a type of guy who appears once in a whole lifetime in UFC! Nobody ever will be like him in UFC! 🙌🙏

  21. Robert Luengas on December 19, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    The thumbnail looks like it’s from the 90s, the background looks classic.

  22. Chisel Teeth on December 19, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Officially shot as a fighter and more annoying than cejudo.

  23. Jay C on December 19, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Tony got completely destroyed like I knew he was, hes slowly goin down. He didn’t even have face to do a post conference interview ouch

  24. mifdhal azman on December 19, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    im from future tony will lose in that match

  25. Unc0ver_YT on December 19, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Oh man.. Tony you are done brother.. 🦅

  26. hilal sinno on December 19, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    I think he talks too much…And talks with a lot of confidence but cannot back it up…this guy is done…should retire

  27. Kong Vang on December 19, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Seems like this guy’s got a lot of grudge. That’s not good for the mind going into a fight. Charles Oliveira’s got a great attitude. He’s grateful and humble. He’ll be a champ.

  28. OffTHEcuff. on December 19, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    he looks past himself, retire please before someone shakes your brain for the 3rd time in 6 months…

  29. D C on December 19, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    After seeing how easily Khabib dealt with Gaethje there is no way I can see Tony ever beating Khabib. But he might cut him with his elbows which no one has done.

  30. Rick Daniel A. on December 19, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Tony interviews are gold and I love this dude..but let’s be real Khabib would wipe the floor with him back then, tomorrow or in 2 years time. Grapplers 30% of Khabib’s level have had the better of Tony. Like Chael Sonnen said "Khabib hasn’t shown us how good he is, he’s only shown us how much better he is than the rest". It’s been a cake walk for Khabib, he has not been pushed close to the max of his capabilities.

  31. Rick Diculous on December 19, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Tony "Jabroni" Fergy is not the same fighter after the brain damage he recieved from Gaethje

  32. Tim Nash on December 19, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    I did not know he was working with forest. Awesome

  33. erick yugcha on December 19, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    The cluttered cardigan superfamily flow because cucumber advisably challenge amongst a maddening guatemalan. quick, hard radar

  34. Paul Hau Yon on December 19, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Here after the tony´s fight : "Hold on, I´m feeling down brota"

  35. Rakib Fiha on December 19, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Tony was delusional. Wake the fk up. You ain’t beating Khabib. I am happy the Khabib fight never happened. It would have been one sided mauling.

  36. jay schoeller on December 19, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Yeah you need HELP

  37. yeah it's Me. on December 19, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    TONY Washed Up FERGUSON….

  38. Erik The Red on December 19, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Tony, the Type Of Guy to interview himself.

  39. Libra66 on December 19, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Enough is enough Tony barely can speak properly he got brain damage now Mann.. No more stupid excuse just retired we don’t want to seeTony got beat up twice in a year again Tony the type of guy just can’t stop mocking even he is little bit stupid guy.

  40. Matt Skylar on December 19, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    I wonder what will come of Tony after this last loss. Can he be let go in 2020?

  41. Paulo Pimenta on December 19, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    This conversation would made sense if this was a post-fight interview where Tony got the W. He should go back to the drawing board and hire some good coaches to couple with his warrior and heart state of mind!

  42. Hulk Rogan on December 19, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    He shouldn’t have fought so soon after Justin. He looked horrible!

  43. Defectum Productions on December 19, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    I’m sorry this dude is too cringy. I don’t get why so many fans adore this dude.

  44. yuval saban on December 19, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Akward as he is, Tony is an artist and a genius when it comes to life-wisdom and fighting

  45. MrSuperduperfellow on December 19, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Ufc screwed tony.

  46. Jon Jones on December 19, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Tony ia not Tony without the crowd.

  47. Sumiran Salleh on December 19, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    What a pity. You’re not ready, yet you’re still want a fight. Now your career facing downfall

  48. Bobo on December 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm

  49. s c on December 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm

  50. Jj Smith on December 19, 2020 at 10:46 pm
