Relive Tony Ferguson’s War With Anthony Pettis At UFC 229

Relive Tony Ferguson’s UFC 229 co-main event showdown against Anthony Pettis ahead of his return to the octagon at next month’s UFC 238.

It was the fight that served as the perfect precursor to the main-event which, of course, showcased the grudge match between the former featherweight and lightweight champ Conor McGregor and the reigning champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

In many ways, Tony Ferguson has been seen as the uncrowned divisional king for quite some time now.

With a win-streak that contains some of the most recognizable names on the roster and with a style that all-but-guarantees violence, El Cucuy has quietly become one of the popular fighters in the game.

And while the matchup with Donald Cerrone is one that sees many people favouring the former interim-champion, with a pair of action fighters like this, the scene has been set for an incredibly interesting affair.

As things stand, the UFC’s lightweight division is perhaps the most stacked in the sport and with the champion Khabib Nurmagomedov set to defend his title against Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 – the winner of this UFC 238 clash will likely be the next in line for a crack at the belt.

With that in mind, the official YouTube account of the UFC have uploaded Ferguson’s UFC 229 war with Anthony Pettis for our enjoyment.
