UFC FN 98: Tony Ferguson Plans to “Touch” 145, 170 Divisions, “Knock Everybody Out”
By FCF Staff
Tony Ferguson has been tearing through the lightweight division over the last couple of years, and “El Cucuy” plans to do the same at both 145 and 170.
Since Ferguson was decisioned by Michael Johnson in 2012, the 32 year-old has won eight straight fights. If Ferguson defeats former lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 98 on Saturday, his case for a title shot will have never been stronger.
Recently Ferguson spoke to UFC.com about the upcoming bout and his future, and the noted finisher said this:
“I’m almost to the top and these guys need to get it through their head that I’m coming for them,” he said. “I’m a nightmare for anybody in this division, and even at 145 and 170. And trust me, I will touch those divisions. Once I’m done with this one, I’ll drop down and I’ll jump up. I’ll knock everybody out at 170, I’m knocking everybody out at 155 and you can be damn sure I’ll do the same thing at 145.”
Dos Anjos will be competing for the first time since July, when he lost the title to Eddie Alvarez via first round, stoppage. UFC FN 98 will be hosted by the Mexico City Arena in Mexico City.
