Tony Ferguson refuse to tap out despite his arm being bent BACKWARDS as Oliveira nearly breaks it at UFC 256December 13, 2020
TONY FERGUSON refused to tap out despite his arm being bent backwards last night.
The battle-hardened star somehow didn't quit as Charles Oliveira locked in his submission move.
The 36-year-old was lucky to escape with his arm in tact before the bell rang for the end of the first round.
Oliveira left no doubt about his worthiness for a title shot with a one-sided win at UFC 256.
And it was Ferguson's second defeat in 2020 after going 12-0 over the previous seven years.
Oliveira sunk in a nasty armbar in the closing seconds of the first round but Ferguson simply refused to tap before the bell – even as his elbow bowed dangerously in the wrong direction.
Oliveira won 30-26 on all three judges' cards.
Only four active UFC fighters have longer winning streaks than the Brazilian submission specialist.
He said: "Nobody has done to Tony Ferguson what I just did.
"I'm proving that I have what it takes to be champion, and that I will be champion next year."
