“The Man Is a Certified Lunatic inside the Cage” Michael Chandler Glorifies Tony Ferguson’s Unpredictable Moves

“The Man Is a Certified Lunatic inside the Cage” Michael Chandler Glorifies Tony Ferguson and his Unpredictable Moves ahead of their fight!

Number 5 ranked UFC lightweight contender Micheal Chandler has lauded the “unpredictable” style of his soon-to-be opponent and former interim champion Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson.

Chandler is set to face Ferguson in a lightweight bout at UFC 274. Chandler went to Daniel Cormier’s Youtube show “DC and RC” to promote and talk about the fight.

When asked about his approach towards this fight as opposed to his previous ones, Chandler revealed that Tony is much more of a puzzle to solve than any other fighter on the roster.  “You never know what Tony Ferguson is going to do, the man is a certified lunatic inside the Cage,” said Micheal Chandler.

Tony Ferguson is far removed from the fighter that he once was. He has been on a losing skid since his IC title loss to Justin Gaethje. Ferguson has suffered subsequent defeats against current LW champion Charles Oliveira and Beneil Dariush. Another loss against Micheal Chandler could very well be the end for “El Cucuy” in the UFC.

Micheal Chandler on the other hand came to the UFC from Bellator MMA in 2021. He TKO’d UFC mainstay Dan “The Hangman” Hooker on his debut, which earned him a title shot for the then-vacant lightweight strap.

Chandler was unable to capture the belt as he was pitted against Charles Oliveria who knocked him out to win it. Chandler had another opportunity to challenge Oliveria again but fell short against the power of Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje in a title eliminator match.

The Ferguson fight will serve as a comeback fight for Chandler, as Tony still remains one of the UFC’s biggest names. Ferguson also has a massive point to prove, this fight will prove once and for all if Ferguson is still cut out for the UFC or not.

The unpredictable style of Tony Ferguson vs the explosiveness of “Iron” Micheal Chandler is going to make “Ferguson vs Chandler” an absolute barn burner!
