Word of warning to the greater Denver area -- the "Boogeyman" is coming.
That's because Anthony Ferguson has been booked to throw leather in a lightweight tilt against Aaron Riley at the upcoming UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage" event on Sept. 24 in Colorado, according to the promotion's Twitter.
Ferguson (11-2) makes his way to the "Mile High City" carrying his Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 trophy after beating it out of Ramsey Nijem at the Finale on June 4.
Following him into town is grizzled veteran Aaron Riley, who, despite being 30-years-old, has been in the fight game since 1997 when "El Cucuy" was just an adolescent. He's run hot and cold in his time inside the Octagon but he's a represents a considerable test for a hot young prospect.
Show us what you're made of, Anthony.
Sounds like a lot of fun to be had in Denver, folks.
