After Tony Ferguson efficiently dealt with Kevin Lee last week, he is now the interim title-holder in the UFC’s lightweight division, and the next in line to fight champion Conor McGregor.
Following the Dubliner’s foray into boxing over the summer, he is widely expected to return to the Octagon, but there has been a question over whom his opponent may be. There certainly has been an appetite for a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz. However, if McGregor is truly going to ensure this is a credible and legitimate title reign, Ferguson must be next in line.
‘El Cucuy’ has put together an impressive ten-fight win-streak, and is a huge threat to McGregor’s lightweight strap.
While nothing has been confirmed, it is the fight fans want to see, and smart money suggests that Ferguson is next up for McGregor.
To get us even more excited at the prospect, Axiom Films have put together a thunderous promo for the potential fight, and it really does bring the hype to the next level.
This highlights the power and ability of Ferguson, while his promise that he’s holding some trash-talk back in order to go toe-to-toe with McGregor on that front is certainly enthralling.
