Tony Ferguson received widespread praise for refusing to perform at UFC 262
Beneil Dariush consistently led Tony Ferguson to the mat during the three rounds of their main event, which took place at UFC 262 on May 15, 2021, and then maintained him there for the most of the fight. Dariush defeated Ferguson with a decisive victory via grappling and submission holds.
When Dariush secured a strong heel hook on Ferguson, it became one of the most talked about moments of the fight. The filing was obviously painful for Ferguson, as the latter appeared to grimace in discomfort.
However, Tony Ferguson did not participate in the attempted abuse by listening in on it. Instead, he managed to avoid death and went on to challenge Darius to a fight. Ferguson was not successful in convincing Darius to take a stand, and Darius maintained his dominance over the country. Dariush emerged victorious in the battle against Ferguson, taking the victory via unanimous decision.
After that, Tony Ferguson gained a significant amount of respect and thanks from others around him for his refusal to take advantage of the painful surrender tactic.
It is anticipated that Beneil Dariusz will be able to advance to the upper tier of competition in the lightweight division of the UFC with a victory at UFC 262. While this is going on, the general perception is that Tony Ferguson needs to put together another remarkable victory streak before he can re-enter the UFC image in the lightweight title picture.
