Tony Ferguson has given an update on just what took him out of next week’s UFC on Fox 19 event, and it’s a little bit scary.
I am out of my Fight Due to Blood/Fluid in my Lung. Usually I can Power Through These things. Doc said it wasn’t wise to Fight due to any more trauma could be terminal. There are more Important things to me Like Making sure I am there for my Little Man Armand Anthony & @xtfergie @darceandknucklez Family First. I will be Back, I will be Better. You haven’t seen anything yet. #TeamFerguson #TeamElCucuy #TonyFergusonMMA #SnapDownCity #OGElCucuy Give me a couple weeks. Khabib pulled out Three Times. I have pulled out Once in my Whole Career… I will be Back. It’s Shitty these things happen… Staying Positive for my Family. TF
For his part, Nurmagomedov is more than understanding on the withdrawal, Tweeting out the following to Ferguson:

Penick’s Analysis: We wish the best for Ferguson in recovery here. That’s certainly a concerning issue to be dealing with, and not something he should be taking risks with. Hopefully it’s an issue that clears up soon enough on its own so he can get back into contention.
