Tony Ferguson has said he won’t lose weight due to the cancellation of the band for the UFC championship title on March 18. April should come.
UFC 249 was canceled last week after Dana White attempted to bypass federal and state coronavirus rules in California to hold a customs event on tribal land at Tachi Palace.
When the president of the UFC announced that the night of the fighting led by Ferguson and Justin Getzhe would continue, ESPN and Disney White’s parent company ordered ESPN to resign and postpone the event.

Ferguson had to fight for the lightweight mid-ranking title and posted a message on Twitter that he still intends to gain weight.
He said… He is still active and will arrive by Friday with a weight of 155 pounds. It’s a UFC thing. Only the champion. UFC 249. The Hold Grinding team.
Originally, Ferguson was to become champion Habib Nurmagomedov before the coronavirus crisis ended the sport worldwide.
Nurmagomedov was quarantined at home in Russia and had to defend himself when the fans and Ferguson accused him of cancelling their match.

For the fifth time, Ferguson and Nurmagomedov had to stop fighting, and the American reacted to his fight to replace Gethei, who suffered the same fate.
Wow, Ferguson said about the cancellation of UFC 249. Okay, good. I’m gonna practice… I’m sure there’s a good reason. Let’s be realistic. I must keep my faith.
The constant is that things will always change. One variable is how I react to it.

So we can drop this variable, baby, and we make it constant. That’s why I keep laughing.
I’m gonna keep practicing, and you know what? I’m gonna get some muscle. Dude, I’m thin. I’m gonna get some muscle.
After the California government beat Mr. White for ignoring health advice during the pandemic, Disney and ESPN were forced to intervene.
It was a fight from day one. Since the beginning of this pandemic on September 18, we have fought all day and all night. April started spreading, White told ESPN.
Today we got a call from the highest level you can go to Disney, and from the highest level of ESPN. The forces asking me to resign and not do it next Saturday.
