Yesterday the we lost UFC on FOX 19 headliner Tony Ferguson to a training injury, and though the Powers That Be are still working on finding a late-replacement to face Khabib Nurmagomedov, we now have some insight on what felled Ferguson.
Lung injury. Ugh.
As per the TUF winner’s Instagram:
I am out of my Fight Due to Blood/Fluid in my Lung. Usually I can Power Through These things. Doc said it wasn’t wise to Fight due to any more trauma could be terminal. There are more Important things to me Like Making sure I am there for my Little Man Armand Anthony & @xtfergie @darceandknucklez Family First. I will be Back, I will be Better. You haven’t seen anything yet. #TeamFerguson #TeamElCucuy #TonyFergusonMMA #SnapDownCity #OGElCucuy Give me a couple weeks. Khabib pulled out Three Times. I have pulled out Once in my Whole Career… I will be Back. It’s Shitty these things happen… Staying Positive for my Family. TF
People die from fluid in their lungs, so Ferguson’s injury is no joke. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
