UFC 238: Cowboy v Ferguson
Donald Cerrone is fresh off of his victory over Al Iaquinta at UFC Ottawa last Saturday, May 4th. The contest saw Cowboy put on a dominant performance against a dogged and determined Iaquinta. The New York native was knocked down twice in the bout, giving Cerrone two new UFC records:
Most knockdowns in the UFC
Most wins in the UFC
Now, after making history, Cowboy has not given himself much time before his next challenge. This comes in the form of Tony Ferguson scheduled for UFC 238, July 8 in Chicago. ''El Cucuy'' has famously been absent from the UFC since having his wife file a restraining order against him. However, this has since been terminated and Tony is said to have passed his medical examinations. Ferguson (14-1 UFC), No. 2 in the Lightweight division, has not stepped into the octagon since October, when he defeated Anthony Pettis at UFC 229. He has his visions set on returning to the No.1 contender spot, but faces a tough fight with 4th seed, Donald Cerrone.
This fight is sure to create fireworks and will set either fighter up for the title shot, without doubt.
