‘He really needs to hang it up‘: Fighters react to Bobby Green choking out Tony Ferguson at UFC 291

Tony Ferguson suffered his sixth straight loss at UFC 291, and in a way no one would expect after Bobby Green choked him unconscious.

Green secured an arm-triangle choke at the 4:54 mark of the third round, just six seconds shy of a fight he was winning in a lopsided manner as Ferguson failed to match his striking output or pose a submission threat.

For Green, it was a big feather in his cap. For Ferguson, it was another sign that the one-time interim lightweight champ’s best days are behind him.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC 291 main card bout between Tony Ferguson and Bobby Green.
