UFC Champ Tony Ferguson Opts for Surgery

In McGregor's absence, the UFC implemented an interim 155-pound title, which was won by Tony Ferguson at UFC 216 this past October.

Ferguson had been lobbying hard for a unification bout with UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. While he was linked to a potential showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 219 on December 30, "The Eagle's" scheduled bout with Edson Barboza will go on.

While undefeated lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov is returning to the Octagon, Ferguson hasn't been overly interested in trying to make that fight after several past attempts have failed to get them in the cage together.

The UFC Interim Lightweight Champion has a professional MMA record of 23-3-0, with notable wins over Joe Schilling, Brock Jardine, Ramsey Nijem, Yves Edwards, Danny Castillo, Abel Trujillo, Gleison Tibau, Josh Thomson, Edson Barboza, Rafael Dos Anjos and the aforementioned Kevin Lee.

There's also Nate Diaz, who'll likely only return for a trilogy bout with McGregor.

"In good spirits even after elbow surgery".

Ferguson's wife, Cristina. revealed the news through her private Instagram account. Preying for a speedy recovery baby.
