UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson may be one of the most lethal strikers in MMA.
Recently, Ferguson shared a video of him training on a speed bag. To no one’s surprise, Ferguson showed great speed with his punches, but Ferguson also showed incredible speed just using his elbows.
Ferguson’s striking abilities have led him to being one of the top contenders in the UFC’s 155-pound division.
Ferguson is currently on a nine-fight win streak in the UFC lightweight division. He is currently coming off a unanimous decision win over former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos back in November.
Overall, Ferguson is ranked No. 2 in the official UFC lightweight rankings. He also has a strong claim to being next in line for a UFC title opportunity.
With current UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor taking a break from MMA to compete in boxing, there isn’t a world title in Ferguson’s weight class.
In April, Ferguson was scheduled to fight for an interim lightweight title, but his opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov withdrew from the fight after having issues making weight.
