It’s a fight no MMA fan will want to miss, but was it the right one to make?
UFC officials recently announced that Donald Cerrone (36-11 MMA, 23-8 UFC) and Tony Ferguson (24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC) will meet at June’s UFC 238 event in Chicago in what’s certain to be an action-packed lightweight contest. But was it the right fight to make?
Both Cerrone and Ferguson had expressed their intentions of fighting for the title in their next outing – with “Cowboy” mentioning a bout with Conor McGregor as a potential exception. Further complicating matters for Ferguson, he’s returning from what will be 20 months on the sidelines recovering from injury and dealing with personal matters.
Sure, it’s likely to be a great fight, but was it the right one to make? That was the question we asked in our latest MMA Junkie Radio Daily Debate.
