LAS VEGAS—In an effort to take his MMA skills to a new level, UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson has begun training with a custom-made metal bat.
"I've been working on my hands for years," said Ferguson, who is currently ranked No. 3 in the official UFC lightweight rankings. "But I'm not satisfied with just being able to hit hard; I want to be able to take any strike." Ferguson's coach Eddie Bravo, that also coaches podcaster Joe Rogan, was instrumental in developing the unorthodox training regimen.
"Tony's always had good power in his punches," said Bravo on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. "But there are still contenders out there that can faze him, so I thought it would be good for him to get hit with something hard."
"I mean, the guy is getting beat up by a metal bat," added Bravo. "I've seen enough shonen anime to know what happens next."
Ferguson said that while his new training regimen has improved his ability to absorb punishment, there is still a long way to go until he is ready to move on from this phase of training.
"I'm definitely taking shots better now," said Ferguson. "But I've noticed that when I get hit in the face by Cormier, it hurts way more than when I got hit in the face with this metal bat."
For Tony Ferguson, it is just as important to maintain sturdy testicles as it is to have a strong chin.
"I've been working on my balls, too," said Ferguson. "I want them to be so hard that they can withstand any blow."
