Tony Ferguson will look to make a triumphant return to the Octagon later tonight (Sat., June 8, 2019) at UFC 238 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside United Center in Chicago, Ill., when he squares off against fan favorite and red-hot veteran Donald Cerrone in a Fight of the Year candidate.
The lightweight affair is likely to spit out the next top contender at 155 pounds. A win for Ferguson would put him on a 12-fight win streak and undefeated since a decision loss to Michael Johnson back in 2012, while a victory for Cerrone, who already holds the UFC record for most wins and finishes, would push him to 3-0 since his return to the division earlier this year. It’s a very important fight to say the least.
In preparation for the main card showdown, UFC has opened up its vault and dug dip for video footage of Ferguson’s top 5 best finishes inside of the Octagon (shown in the above video player). From his winning knockout over Ramsey to claim Ultimate Fighter rights to his submission win over Kevin Lee in 2017 to claim the interim UFC lightweight title, “El Cucuy” has produced an array of memorable finishes inside of the cage.
Only time will tell if Ferguson can wrangle up “Cowboy” later tonight at UFC 238 and add him to this list. It would be quite impressive if he did, especially considering Ferguson has only fought once in nearly two years.
