Looks like Tony Ferguson just decided who his next opponent will be. The 36-year-old former UFC lightweight champion challenged former Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler in social media.
Ferguson wrote: Let’s end the year 2020 on a high note. Michael Chandler, you’re Putz, I asked for this. …..
You can see the whole conversation in the Instagram message below.
Ferguson’s place is now complete:
Time Two Sunday # D’arceKnightRises… Again ⚔️ Let’s end the year 2020 with a high note. Michael Chandler, you’re Putz. I asked for this. # Added to TheListBish’ CSO™️ December @ufc @mikechandlermma #MyMat -Champ
Ferguson tablet December
Apparently Ferguson wants to meet Chandler as early as December, which could mean he has to leave on December 12th. December can enter 256 CFU.
The first UFC 256 was led by Amanda Nunes against Megan Anderson. However, Nunes has left the event, so it seems that there is now an open slot on the UFC motherboard.
In fact, it is possible that Ferguson’s fight against Chandler will be the most important event on this map, as Ferguson’s fight against Dustin Poirier will also be the most important event in UFC 254, as is suspected.
Instead of this fight, Mr. Poirier finally passed the idea on as money. But eventually the diamond landed on the next crack in UFC superstar Conor McGregor, leaving Ferguson out in the cold.
But Ferguson versus Chandler seems to be warming the career of a popular star.
Indeed, Ferguson versus Chandler would be an incredible opportunity for UFC officials at the end of the year.
Despite the global pandemic, MMA, the world’s largest advertising company, has managed to stack the deck against some of the biggest MMA stars month after month.
Let’s just say. It was without the case of Ferguson vs. Chandler a great year for the company. A fight with UFC 256 (or any other map in December) would just bring more glamour.

Ferguson versus Chandler becomes the battle between Stalwarts.
Ferguson versus Chandler would be the fight between two of the top 100-pounders of the sport.
Chandler, 34 years old, signed a contract with the UFC in September. He was champion three times under the advertising flag of Bellator and left the company after winning the last fight with Benson Henderson on the Bellator 243.
After an overwhelming first round against his old rival, the American became a free agent and eventually signed a lucrative contract with the UFC.
Chandler has not yet made his UFC debut, although he served as a replacement for UFC 254.
Meanwhile, Ferguson lost his last match against Justin Gatha in UFC 249. But El Cucuy won 12 straight fights before stopping in the fifth round, and the popular lightweight rival returned to the heart of the action with a 155-pound victory over Chandler.
