UFC 249–Tony Ferguson Odds

Spread the love

Tony Ferguson has only been an underdog once during his 16-fight UFC career. That fight was his November 2016 matchup opposite Rafael dos Anjos. Ferguson won that battle via unanimous decision. On Saturday, Ferguson, the former interim UFC lightweight champion looks to become a two-time interim titleholder when he faces former World Series of Fighting 155-pound kingpin Justin Gaethje in the main event of the UFC 249-pay-per-view card.

Ferguson was a cast member for Season 13 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” He was the third pick by his coach, Brock Lesnar. That pick proved to be a good one, as Ferguson won that season with four knockout victories. He stopped Ramsey Nijem in the finals with a first-round knockout. Ferguson, who competed as a welterweight during TUF, dropped to lightweight after his “Knockout of the Night” bonus-winning victory.

Ferguson won his next two UFC bouts before Michael Johnson upset him in May 2012. Johnson defeated Ferguson via decision. Ferguson has not lost since that setback. He is currently tied with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for the longest winning streak in the UFC with 12 consecutive victories.

Ferguson has won eight fight-night bonuses in his past eight UFC outings. The only fight during that stretch that Ferguson did not receive a bonus was his third-round submission victory over Kevin Lee in the main event of UFC 216. Ferguson won the interim 155-pound title in that bout. The UFC later stripped him of the belt due to injury.

Since the UFC took the belt from him, Ferguson is 2-0 with second-round knockout wins over Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone. At UFC 249, Ferguson has the chance to regain the interim title when he faces Gaethje in the main event bout.

UFC 249 takes place at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The main card streams on ESPN+ pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
