UFC 229: Ferguson outworks Pettis in absolute war

UFC 229: Ferguson outworks Pettis in absolute war

Fans expected that a good showing by "Showtime" could have ended hopes for the title opportunity that Ferguson had.

Kick to the body from Ferguson, who presses forward as Pettis is content to circle. Low leg kick for Ferguson now. Ferguson tends to go for spinning attacks on the feet but should focus on maintaining a disciplined attack that offers less openings for Pettis. Right hand for Ferguson lands and Pettis looks slowed. Ferguson is down and Pettis swarms, forcing "El Cucuy" into a commando roll to safety. Pettis lands a right hook and Ferguson is hurt.

Anthony Pettis last faced Michael Chiesa, who he defeated by Triangle Armbar.

The pair were left covered in blood following their fiery fight. Going into the fight with Chiesa, Pettis was on the brink of possibly sliding out of the top ten with a loss and had a 2-5 record since 2015. 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 called out Conor immediately after the fight. A right hand scores for Pettis, and a left behind it. Ferguson is pressuring his foe, walking him down, getting in his face, and throwing kicks and punches from every angle. Pettis laughs! What an elbow by Ferguson. Pettis slows down. Wow, what a kick by Pettis! The Fight Is Over, Coach Won't Let Him Continue!

Ferguson is in tears in the center of the cage.

The fighters then got back to action with Volkov in the box seat and looking on course to take a win.

In the most dramatic of fashion, Lewis somehow turned the fight around.
