Wresting throughout his college career, Tony managed to garner All-American honors twice and winning the national championship in the 165 pound division once.
Returning home to California, Ferguson worked two jobs and came across a patron over the wrong side of the bar he was working in, one too many drinks lead to a conversation about his wrestling background and then and there he was convinced to delve into the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Tony Ferguson has never looked back. Devoting his every waking moment entirely to MMA.
