There are two UFC title fights on the UFC 238 card in Chicago, but this mouth-watering match-up is undoubtedly the people’s ‘main event’.
Tony Ferguson is on an eleven-fight winning streak and although he has endured lots of injury problems before and since his victory over Anthony Pettis at UFC 229, his return to the fray will strike fear into the 155lb Lightweight division.
Donald Cerrone had a successful venture into the 170lb weight class, but ultimately came up short in his quest for a third UFC title shot. But the ‘Cowboy’ is a true fighter and he looked magnificent against Al Iaquinta in the main event at UFC Fight Night Ottawa a month ago. Cerrone is famous for accepting fights at short notice and once again he steps up to take on a tough fight in Tony Ferguson.
Tony Ferguson is a dangerous man and well rounded in all aspects of MMA. He is recovering from a serious injury though and it is hard to know exactly where he will be in terms of fitness, which will not be a concern for backers of Cowboy Cerrone.
Donald Cerrone is an expert grappler and although Ferguson is no slouch in that regard, Cerrone has a strong bottom game and he could really hurt Ferguson in the early stand up exchanges before getting this fight to the ground and finishing Ferguson.
