Tony Ferguson Career Earnings In UFC

Tony Ferguson career earnings in the UFC total up to more than $2.1 million.

Ferguson, 35, is one of the most eclectic fighters to ever fight under the UFC banner.

His career began back in June 2011 when he defeated Ramsey Nijem by way of KO in the first round.

The dominant showing against Nijem was an indicator of things to come, as Ferguson would go on to win 14 of his next 15 fights.

Ferguson’s lone defeat came in a decision loss to Michael Johnson back in May 2012 at UFC on Fox: Diaz vs. Miller.

Since then he has racked up wins over the likes of Danny Castillo, Abel Trujillo, Gleison Tibau, Josh Thomson, Edson Barboza, Lando Vannata, Rafael Dos Anjos, Kevin Lee, Anthony Pettis and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.

Ferguson’s submission victory over Lee back at UFC 216 also earned him the interim lightweight championship of the world – a title he never lost.

Unfortunately, due to the UFC’s seeming desire to ensure that either Conor McGregor or Khabib Nurmagomedov hold the lightweight belt, he was stripped of the title due to injury.

Ferguson has indicated that he has been guaranteed a title shot against the winner of UFC 242’s showdown between Nurmagomedov and Poirier.
