Despite the injury, Ferguson chose to proceed with the fight, where he suffered a one-sided loss to Pimblett. Following his defeat, Ferguson underwent elbow surgery before successfully repairing his torn MCL.

In a social media post, Ferguson revealed the timeline of his injury, stating that he had kept it private until after the fight, training as if nothing had happened. He underwent surgery for both his elbow and knee, aiming to recover and return to fighting shape.

While the decision to fight with a torn MCL remains unclear, Ferguson is optimistic about his recovery and return to the Octagon.

Currently focused on rehabilitating his elbow and knee, Ferguson aims to bounce back from his recent losing streak. With a professional record of 25-10, Ferguson is determined to regain his winning form after a series of setbacks.
