Bobby Green is optimistic about Tony Ferguson’s chances of defeating Paddy Pimblett despite his recent struggles. Ferguson will aim to end his six-fight losing streak against Pimblett at UFC 296 on Dec. 16 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Ferguson’s most recent loss was to Green by a third-round submission at UFC 291. However, Green encourages Ferguson to continue fighting and believes he still has the warrior spirit in him. Green remarked, “Even though I was kicking his ass, Tony was never giving up. He was never going to quit. He was never going to break, and he got that warrior spirit still. So, as long as you got that warrior spirit, go do your thing, bro. You know what I mean? And I think he’s going to beat Paddy.”
While Ferguson has revamped his training methods by working with former Navy SEAL David Goggins, Green doesn’t believe cardio is the issue. He suggests that Ferguson needs to focus on the basics and improve his jab, head movement, and defense.
