Tony Ferguson has opened up on his knockout loss to Michael Chandler.

At UFC 274, Ferguson was looking to break his three-fight losing streak in a very friendly matchup against Chandler. Although ‘El Cucuy’ suffered three straight losses, he did much better than many expected in the first round. However, seconds into the round, Chandler landed a huge front kick that knocked Ferguson out.

Now, days after the loss, Ferguson has taken to social media to open up about the knockout and said he lost his memory after it.
