Ferguson vs Gaethje Betting Preview 

Ferguson has established himself as a major player in the lightweight division with a 12-fight win streak

Tony Ferguson (25-3) is unbeaten since May 5, 2012, and is enjoying an incredible 12-fight winning streak. During that run, he has defeated top fighters such as Rafael dos Anjos, Edson Barboza, and Josh Thomson. Last time out, he defeated Donald Cerrone by TKO at UFC 238 and before that he TKO'd Anthony Pettis at UFC 229. Six of his last eight victories have come by stoppage. He captured the interim lightweight championship with a submission win over Kevin Lee in October 2017, but was stripped of the title after withdrawing from a fight with Nuragomedov in April 2018 due to a torn knee ligament.

Ferguson had been preparing to face Khabib Nurmagomedov before the current UFC lightweight champion was replaced in early April because of travel restrictions stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. El Cucuy is revered for his fearlessness and ability to win through a variety of MMA disciplines.  He is extremely unorthodox on the feet, throwing plenty of spinning attacks, and his cardio is unmatched. With a 6-inch reach advantage over his opponent Ferguson may also try to keep his distance to make this happen.

Gaethje is looking for the biggest scalp in his career

Justin Gaethje (21-2) started his UFC campaign with a 1-2 mark, but has since won three straight bouts by first-round knockout, with the latest being a first-round knockout of Donald Cerrone. ‘The Highlight’ won his first bout against Michael Johnson, the man who inflicted Ferguson’s only UFC defeat, with knees in 2017. He’s amassed an impressive 17 knockouts from his 21 wins in his career.

Gaethje is known for his knockout power and relentless aggression. Despite having a strong wrestling background, he has a complete lack of interest in engaging in any kind of grappling antics. The Arizona native is brawler-type fighter who is willing to eat a strike if he can land one in exchange. He has a major reach disadvantage in this fight (more than six inches) but is great at closing the distance against longer fighters.
