The kick briefly disfigured El Cucuy’s face and sent him sprawling to the canvas, where he remained for around two minutes.

After regaining consciousness, he was then taken to hospital by UFC’s medial team to undergo further checks as a precaution.

In response to The Sun, Ferguson was shortly released from hospital after his CT scans got here back negative. 

Defeat against Chandler was the 38-year-old’s fourth on the bounce, following shortcomings against Justin Gaethje, Charles Oliveira and Beneil Dariush.

Yet UFC President Dana White is adamant that he still has more to present to the game, saying: ‘I do not know what’s next for him

‘Nevertheless it’s not like, “Oh my God, Tony got dominated and appears like he doesn’t belong here.”

‘Tony looked rattling good right up until he got caught. And you already know on this game that anybody can get caught with anything.’

Chandler, meanwhile, followed up his explosive victory by calling for a rematch with Oliveira or Gaethje, before then turning his attention to Conor McGregor. 

‘I even have one dude on my mind, Conor McGregor! You’ve got gotta come all the way down to fight anyone,’ he said.  

‘I’m probably the most entertaining lightweight on the planet. I would like to up the stakes, Conor. I would like you at your biggest, I would like you at your baddest and I would like you at your best.

‘You and me, at 170, this summer, this fall, this winter.’

Chandler didn’t must wait long for a response from McGregor, who quickly accepted the fight request on social media.  

‘I’d have a pleasant knock off this guy, little doubt about it. A firework spectacle,’ the Irishman said.

‘I just like the 170 shout also. Tipped him over. I’m definitely game to fight this guy throughout my profession. I see it happening after tonight.

‘Congrats on a solid win Michael and one other barnstormer.’
