The UFC 249 Main Event; Justin Gaethje vs Tony Ferguson

The stakes for both fighters are through the roof with this fight, with the interim title hanging in balance. El Cucuy puts his streak of 12 consecutive wins at stake as he takes on Gaethje.

Tony has been riding high, having gone around 7 years without a single loss. He has taken on the likes of Edson Barboza, Donald Cerrone, and more and emerged unscathed. Ferguson cemented his legacy in the UFC long ago. However, this fight allows the 36-year-old fighter to carve his name on the wall of heroes.

Gaethje has certainly earned his nickname ‘The Highlight’. He has walked away from several fights with post-fight bonuses in his pocket. His unique style and explosive energy make him a complete wild card.

This is one of the fights that make the hair on the nape of your neck stand, thinking about what could happen. Both fighters have a record of straying away from ‘boring fights’ as far as possible. This weekend should be no different.

Travel restrictions made it impossible for Jose Aldo to step up to Henry Cejudo, which is why Cruz stepped in to replace Aldo, looking to make some history of his own.

What makes this fight interesting is the fact that Cruz has been out of action since 2016, and is hell-bent on proving his haters wrong. A series of injuries have kept him sidelined for a rather long time.

The bantamweight division is full of talent with a number of challengers ready to take on the victor of this fight. This is where it gets interesting for the 135-pound weight class. This is where it begins.
