Tony Ferguson has been around the lightweight title picture for a while now. However, he could not realize his goal of becoming the undisputed lightweight champion. The Mexican-American is a former interim champion but never fought for the undisputed gold.
Following his interim title win over Kevin Lee and consequent stripping of the title, Tony Ferguson was out for a couple of months. On his return to the octagon, Ferguson secured stoppage wins over Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone, leaving both men in a bloody mess.
Tony was then awarded his second interim title fight against Justin Gaethje. The winner would fight Khabib Nurmagomedov for the undisputed title. Most fans hoped that Tony would win just so they could watch Tony vs Khabib. However, Justin Gaethje had plans of his own.
In arguably one of the best performances of his career, Justin stopped Tony in the fifth round of their fight and secured a title fight against Khabib.
