Tony Ferguson is known for his weird and wonderful training videos and brought up another one recently

UFC 256 has one mega clash with Tony Ferguson facing off against Charles Oliveira. Both fighters accepted the clash on short-notice but this could be one of the best fights of the year.

This would also be Ferguson’s first fight since being dismantled by Justin Gaethje for the interim UFC Lightweight title.

El Cucuy was on a 12-fight win streak prior to that but was dominated by his rival. However, Ferguson still remains an enigma in the MMA scene.

He is unorthodox yet deadly and has often posted some crazy training videos in the past. The American did it again recently as he shared a clip of him doing a couple of somersaults from a trampoline.

Ferguson also shared several clips of others who were practising some incredible moves, and it will be interesting to see if El Cucuy has picked up some things from this trip.

Ferguson is someone who cannot be taken lightly and Oliveira has to be a little careful going into the Octagon against El Cucuy.

Waiting for the title shot

Oliveira is coming off a great win over Kevin Lee in his last fight. However, this UFC 256 co-main event will be an incredible battle.

This could also see the winner move a step closer to a title shot. Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor are to meet in 2021 while Justin Gaethje has also thrown his hat into the title scene.

Gaethje also made a prediction for Ferguson vs Oliveira and backed the American to pick up the win.

Ferguson is a former interim champion but has never held the main belt. That could change if he gets a win over Oliveira and all eyes will be on El Cucuy as he tries to make a spectacle at UFC 256.
