    He gets a solid 7.5 from me, well on his way to moving up the ranks.

    I understand selling fights and everything, but Tony Ferguson’s play at hyping up fights is quite possibly the most cringeworthy things to watch, ever. The guy is legit at something, and it’s not fighting, it’s mastering the art of cringe.

    He’s not at the Tito Ortiz “jackal story” level yet but he’s damn well on his way.

    From 0 to Dragonclaw, I'd say a 2.

    A solid 9. He just needs to stay quiet and fight. He can't talk shit for shit.

    On the Cringe-O-Meter, Fergie is:

    A Mile behind Colby Covington.

    A Mile ahead of everyone else.

    His cringe is the only kind of good cringe.

    There truth in that cringe and the truth is starting to takeover.

    Tony bless.

    Colby is an 11 and Conor is a 10. Tony is like a 3.

    Just skip all the promo garbage tbh.

    He balances out his cringe with always wanting to fight, always delivering and being awesome.

    His cringe has won me over. He has doubled and tripled down on it. It’s who he is, it isn’t forced or fake and it’s starting to become funny as hell rather than cringe.

    Great fighter but he's definitely a weirdo.

    He's weird as fuck, but is fun as hell to watch fight and has heart for days.

    Every UFC fighter should strive to fight like Tony.

    Like the guy or not, if you don’t find some of the things he says absolutely bizzare or cringeworthy, I’m going to assume you’re a highly functioning autistic person.

    Pretty much at the top of the scale.

    Watched one of his interviews from the media day and he said something like "This is a rat race but I'm no rat. I'm a turtle. A motherfucking ninja turtle! Which one is your favourite? [awkward silence] I like Michelangelo.... next question".

    This was said in a very angry "I'm a badass" kind of tone without a hint of humour or irony.
