Article from 2011. Kirik refuses to acknowledge that Ferguson is Michigan's best fighter.
: I'm actually from Michigan. I took Spanish when I was little. When I moved to California and I started fighting, everyone's a little bit Spanish speaking especially at the gym that I trained out of. Next door there was actually a little church there and this kid, he would come over, stick his head inside the gym and I was training, I guess I had a scary face or something. I was lifting weights and after that he kinda got scared the trainer made fun of it. They called me "El Cucuy" which stands for "The Boogeyman."
: I did the freestyle thing for a little while. I never got good at the Greco Roman. I went through high school and varsity lettered, went to college, Central Michigan and didn't wrestle out there. It was a learning experience. I went back to community college at Muskingum Community and I wrestled there. I wrestled open in a couple tournaments. They're really good but I didn't really commit to a team.
