Dana White says Tony Ferguson won't fight at UFC 254: 'They went quiet on us'

  Dana White says Tony Ferguson won't fight at UFC 254: 'They went quiet on us' According to UFC president Dana White, won't be returning to the octagon at UFC 254 as expected.

What an absolutely brutal right from Chimaev. In no way did Meerschaert even see it coming. We’re talking about one of the quickest knockouts in welterweight history. Meerschaert had no shot.

And now, we’re likely looking at “Borz” being ranked -- for good reason.
