Tony Ferguson Reveals Why He Cut 24lbs Despite Cancelled UFC 249 Fight

And the 36-year-old has revealed why he made weight even though he isn't fighting this weekend.

"It wasn't just for me - it was for my team, man, and my sponsors and obviously for my family," Ferguson explained to ESPN.

"And just the commitment to myself to follow through with the weight cut. To me that says a lot more for my stock. Saying that you know what, 'I'm gonna make weight; I'm not gonna miss weight.'

"I have what it takes mentally to go through this fight camp. It's gonna be awesome, dude. It was such a great experience."

The interim-UFC lightweight title bout against Gaethje is still in play for May 9.

But 'El Cucuy' said he has yet to sign anything for the new date, but he's aware he might need to cut weight again.

"I've been dong the exact same sh*t," Ferguson added. "Everybody has been quarantined now, but I'm still living the same life. I'm still doing my thing, which is training and bettering myself every single day. My growth factor is f**king huge right now, pardon my language. Literally, I feel great.

"For me to make weight and Justin Gaethje not to make weight, that's a chalk line right there. That's a chalk line versus any opponent I have. Any person that would make championship weight today was the smart one that's gonna compete on that card, that's still competing."
