Uh-oh. "Boogeyman" in da howse!
"Verbal agreements are in for an explosive lightweight matchup between Ultimate Fighter season 13 winner Tony Ferguson and veteran striking specialist Yves Edwards December 3rd on the Ultimate Fighter Finale," confirmed UFC president Dana White today.
Ferguson, a former blogger for SB Nation, was last seen chin-checking Aaron Riley at the UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage" event back on Sept. 24. And by chin-checking I mean he shattered dude's jaw in short order.
It marked the fifth win in a row for "El Cucuy" and his second inside the Octagon. Another contender emerging, perhaps?
If he wants to prove he is he'll have to do so by sliding on by crafty veteran Yves Edwards, who is coming off an impressive win of his own at UFC on Versus 6 just a few weeks ago.
The "Thugjitsu Master" is 3-1 in his second run with the world's largest fight promotion and aside from a crushing one punch knockout loss suffered via Sam Stout's "Hand of Stone," he's looked like a beast.
Then again, Ferguson has the power to replicate that one-hitter quitter if he lands clean. Will he?
We shall see.
The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale goes down this coming Dec. 3, 2011, at the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. On top of crowning the first two "Ultimate Fighters" in the bantamweight and featherweight divisions, the event will feature this season's coaches, Michael Bisping and Jason Miller, settling their differences inside the cage in a five-round main event showdown.
