Tony Ferguson won a season of TUF, and has won 10 out of 11 fights in the Octagon proper – a remarkable feat in and of itself. But for one reason or another, a shot at the belt has eluded him.
That all could change if he performs up to his potential at the TUF LatAm 3 Finale on November 5, because his opponent is none other than former champ Rafael dos Anjos. If Ferguson loses – which is a possibility, as Dos Anjos is a badass – well, it’s back to the drawing board. But if he wins… If he wins, he’s done more than enough to prove he belongs among the lightweight division’s elite.
To remind you of just how good Ferguson is, here’s his fight against Edson Barboza.
