Tony Ferguson talks about his controversial win over Yves Edwards at the TUF 14 finale

Tony Ferguson talks about his controversial win over Yves Edwards at the TUF 14 finale

Bobby Green’s ‘Fighting Style: Hood’ can only aspire to be Yves Edwards’ ‘Thug-Jitsu’. It’s the coolest martial arts that no one fully understands but has already earned every ounce of street cred imaginable based on name alone. From the duration of 2002-2005, everything that was said about Eddie Alvarez, Gilbert Melendez and Frankie Edgar was being said about Yves Edwards. From June 2002 to May 2005, Yves Edwards went on an 11-1 run (with six of those wins coming inside the octagon). In a perfect world, Yves Edwards would have been crowned the undisputed UFC lightweight champion — unfortunately the lightweight title didn’t exist back in those days.

Last night at the TUF 14 finale, Thug-Jitsu went up against El Cucuy-Fu and it produced a very controversial decision in favor of Tony Ferguson. A large majority of people believe Yves Edwards should have been awarded a 29-28 decision, and Ferguson addresses these concerns (and a few other things) in this interview we grabbed last night just after the post-fight press conference.
