Tony Ferguson has looked great since we first saw him on Season 13 of the Ultimate Fighter.
In his last fight he lost a decision to Michael Johnson, but prior to that Ferguson was on a 6 fight winning streak, which included wins over tough opponents like Aaron Riley and Yves Edwards.
Ferguson can be forgiven for losing his last fight as Michael Johnson looked incredible. He looked like a completely different fighter and he performed significantly better than we had seen him before. There was no way Ferguson could’ve shown up and expected him to be that good.
Mike Rio is relatively new to the UFC, having fought just twice so far.
His record in the Octagon is 1-1, beating John Cofer in his UFC debut, but later losing via a triangle choke to Franciso Trinaldo.[divider]
This is a very tough fight for Mike Rio.
Tony Ferguson will use his superior wrestling to control where this fight takes place and look to pick apart Rio with his excellent striking skills.
