Former interim lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson is hoping to secure a fight against one of the best 155lb fighters after suffering his first loss since 2014 at the hands of Justin Gaethje at UFC 249 on May 9.

Ferguson was supposed to face off against lightweight king, Khabib Nurmagomedov earlier this year but that fight fell through due to the ongoing global pandemic. ‘El Cucuy’ accepted a fight with late replacement opponent Justin Gaethje instead. Things didn’t go well for Ferguson on fight night. He was dominated for four rounds before being stopped in the fifth and final round by ‘The Highlight’.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani of ESPN Ferguson indicated he is ready to return and is eyeing fight with two of the best lightweights in the world, he said.

“You want to give me Conor, give me Conor. You want to give me Poirier, we’ll make that happen. Then we’ll fight the winner of the Gaethje and Khabib fight.”

Poirier seems the most likely option after he returned to winnings ways against Dan Hooker in one of the best fights 2020 has had to offer. Both men put it all on the line over five rounds, but it was ‘The Diamond’ who emerged victorious via unanimous decision. Post-fight Poirier spoke about his desire to fight Ferguson and it looks like he may now get his wish.

Conor McGregor is currently retired from the sport. The Irish superstar walked away from the sport earlier this year after becoming frustrated by the lack of fights available too him. McGregor had hoped his win over Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone would be one of many in 2020 but he has been unable to compete due to the coronavirus crisis. A fight with Ferguson may well be enough to coax him out of retirement, especially considering the fact a win against ‘El Cucuy’ is a sure-fire way to earn a rematch with Nurmagomedov.

Former interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier is hoping to secure a big name opponent or another title shot after beating Dan Hooker last time out. Poirier bounced back from his lopsided loss to lightweight king Khabib Nuramgomedov last month. ‘The Diamond’ picked up a unanimous decision win over Hooker in one of the best fights 2020 has had to offer.

Nurmagomedov is set to face Justin Gaethje to unify the 155lb division later this year. Former dual weight champion Conor McGregor is currently retired from fighting. So who will Poirier face next? He’s not sure but he’s hoping whatever fight is next has some type of significane.

Speaking on the latest episode of the “Jim Rome Show” Poirier revealed he is hoping any and all of his future fights will mean more than just making some money, he said.

“I don’t know; I’m not sure what the options will be when the UFC comes back and starts sitting at the table to make these matches. It just needs to be a really big name or a title fight. I’ve been doing this for 10 years in the UFC, and I still love fighting, but I want these fights to mean more than just a fight. I don’t want it to just be about a show and win purse. I want it to really mean something, and I know I’m in the back nine of my career.

“I’ve been fighting for a while, I have 40 fights, and I want these last four or five years to really mean something every time I get into the octagon. Not only for me and my family, but for the goals that I’m trying to bring awareness to and raise money for and for my career. I really want to leave a legacy.” (Transcribed by MMA Junkie)
