TUF may fool us something about Tony's ability...

Just saw this on sherdog:

Ferguson took to athletics extraordinarily well, and went on to earn 12 varsity letters at Muskegon Catholic Central High School in football, baseball and wrestling.

He was the starting cornerback on the 2002 state football champions and was a three-time All-State selection in wrestling, winning the 152 lbs division in 2002.
After high school, Ferguson enrolled in Central Michigan University before transferring to Grand Valley State University on a full wrestling scholarship.

There, he went on to garner All-American honors twice, winning the national championship in the 165 lbs division once.

He was the champion of NCWA, not NCAA, but Tom Filthy Lawler was also from NCWA and is a legit wrestler.

Ramsay's words about Tony's wrestling credit:

Tony was a wrestler in college and he demonstrated during his fights on the show that he has knockout power. Where do you think you're better than him?

His college wrestling wasn't real college wrestling -- it was club wrestling. It's below junior college. I wouldn't really consider him a college wrestler or really a wrestler at all. So I think I have an advantage there but my game plan is to exploit his weaknesses everywhere. He doesn't protect his chin after he jabs, so that's an area where I can hurt him, and I eventually plan to get his back on the ground and choke him out. I feel like I have decent hands and I definitely am a better wrestler and have jiu jitsu and can control the fight.

But after this fight, this is completely not true.

On TUF they try to make an impression that Tony from team Lesnar is a striker and Ramsay from team JDS is a wrestler, and the finale should be a typical striker vs. grappler match up.

But in reality, Tony's wrestling is just as good as Ramsay, if not better.
