Justin Gaethje Wants To Go To Tony Ferguson’s ‘Dark Place’

Justin Gaethje wants to go to Tony Ferguson’s “dark place” inside of the Octagon.

The former World Series Of Fighting (WSOF) lightweight champion has been on a tear through the UFC’s 155-pound division as of late. He’s ready to share the Octagon with a premiere challenger in the weight class. Perhaps even a match-up with former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson.

Welterweight competitor Ben Askren suggested as much on Twitter. This garnered a response from “The Highlight,” who said he’d love to go to Ferguson’s “dark place”:

“That sounds fucking fantastic. Take me to that dark place of yours @TonyFergusonXT

The 30-year-old Gaethje is currently on a two-fight win streak, in which he has knocked both of his opponents out cold. He finished James Vick with a hellacious knockout at UFC Lincoln in August. Gaethje followed that up with another huge knockout win over Edson Barboza this past March.

As for Ferguson, he is currently on a ridiculous 12-fight win streak inside the Octagon. He hasn’t been defeated since May of 2012 when Michael Johnson handed “El Cucuy” a unanimous decision defeat. In his latest outing this past weekend (Sat. June 8, 2019), Ferguson defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone via second-round TKO. With the win, Ferguson is expected to receive a title opportunity next.

Given the complexity of the 155-pound division, however, don’t be surprised if Ferguson’s next fight isn’t for the gold.

UFC lightweight contender Justin Gaethje continued his tirade against Conor McGregor on Tuesday.

Following Andy Ruiz Jr.’s shock win over Anthony Joshua this past weekend, McGregor hinted at returning to a boxing ring. With the Irishman having had just one UFC fight since November 2016, Gaethje was not pleased with the tweet as he responded a couple of days later:

“Do it the right way pu**y. Stop sh*tting on the integrity of the sport,” Gaethje wrote. “You want @TeamKhabib again you fight me, or the winner of Cowboy and Ferguson or get the fuck out of here and enjoy all that money.”

It’s not the first time Gaethje has unloaded on McGregor. “The Highlight” has repeatedly called for a fight with the former champion. As recently as last month, he also called for McGregor to be removed from the rankings if he wasn’t active.

In an ideal world, McGregor would face Gaethje or the winner/loser of Tony Ferguson vs. Donald Cerrone this weekend. However, “The Notorious” is a box office star and could easily get a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov as his next fight. UFC president Dana White even recently said he could “absolutely” see it happening.

We’ll just have to wait and see.
