Khabib gave an emphatic performance from start to finish on his way to dominating, wearing down and ultimately submitting McGregor by rear naked choke in round four of their mega fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. For Ferguson and Pettis, the way to remove those men from the equation is to win as impressively as possible on a night where all eyes will be watching.
Pettis was as fantastic as Ferguson, though Ferguson was getting the better of most of the exchanges. Good right jab from Showtime, but Tony returns with a left jab.
"Where you at McNuggets - you fucking piece of shit?" he said.
The victory and his status as a former champion have propelled Pettis into a golden opportunity against Tony Ferguson on Saturday night.
"I had [expletive] fun in there. You [expletive] fans are [expletive] incredible; I love you". Ferguson tends to go for spinning attacks on the feet but should focus on maintaining a disciplined attack that offers less openings for Pettis.
Ferguson had suffered a leg injury early on which Pettis looked to take advantage of. Ferguson destroys Pettis' head at the moment. Ladd got Evinger on the ground, gained control in back mount and then rained down dozens of big shots until the referee stopped it with 94 seconds left in the first. Anthony Pettis is bleeding, but the fight will be continued!
Pettis called out Conor immediately after the fight. Right punch Pettis. More pressure from Ferguson who keeps his hands low. Ferguson attacked with a body kick, and a great spinning back elbow by Pettis, he misses, unfortunately. Pettis laughs! What an elbow by Ferguson. The Fight Is Over, Coach Won't Let Him Continue!
After missing out on a chance to face Khabib Nurmagomedov in April, Ferguson returned from major knee surgery looking to extend his winning streak to 11 and re-affirm his standing as one of the top contenders in the lightweight division.
