The People's Champ!
In UFC,(the ultimate fighting champions), an organization where all styles and fighters from around the world, battle each other to see who's style of fighting is superior and win the world title belt. There is weight classes like in other sports, specifically like in wrestling and boxing. Fighters can move up or lower in their original weight classes once signed by the UFC.

Even though they have an incredible win streak and completely destroying their division. The problems can be the fighter holding the belt is hurt, occupied with another fighter, or simply doesn't want to fight. Thus, the fans and the people created "The People's Champ", a way of expressing their feelings toward the Fighter who should be crowned the champ or at least desires the title fight.

How UFC was Introduced to El Cucuy
As I previously said, Tony was working shifts as a bartender, when I a coach of a local walked in for a drink. Tony was there and began discussion training and martial arts, since both were martial arts fanatics. The coach later invited Tony to his gym and BOOM! Tony "El Cucuy" Ferguson was born. Tony instant fell in love the sport and concept of MMA.
Tony already had a solid foundation on the ground game and only really need to learn was striking and some submissions to learn to be great. And that's what he did, he began training tirelessly and leaning boxing with some submissions. In about 2008, Tony began his professional MMA career fighting lower level organizations all around California. Tony felt his chance to go mainstream was applying to a TVshow, owned and started by the UFC; "The Ultimate Fighter". In 2010, Tony joined the show and did outstanding, defeating all his opponents by knockout or TKO. After making it to the final and winning at The Ultimate Fighter 13 finale, Tony was awarded the trophy and the six-figure contract with the UFC. Tony has now reached the highest level in the Fighting Game.
UFC Record and Winning Streak
After, wining the finale, a year later Tony had his debut fight scheduled. First round TKO win with his opponent saying his jaw is broken and can't fight no more. Bold statement said for "El Cucuy". Tony will have only 3 loses, two by points and one by submission. However, Tony's record is 25-3 with the a tied 12 win streak for the longest in recent times. Most of Tony's wins are with his striking abilities, 12 knockouts with 8 by submission and 5 by decision. In other words, Tony wasn't one of these martial arts who aren't only one dimension and don't continue learning new fighting styles and adapt to the ever so changing Fighting Game.
Due to the last UFC Main Event, Tony should now be next in line for belt. The People's champ might finally have chance to be become The World Lightweight Champion, he should have been many years ago. If the fighting card will be pass Khabib vs Tony will fight for the belt in a fight every fighting fan, been wanting for years. I see this fight being the fight of The Century!
