The Ultimate Fighter Latin America 3 Finale back in Nov. 5, 2016, Tony Ferguson took on former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in the main event of the card. That night in Mexico City, Ferguson outpointed the Brazilian in a dominant performance. Ferguson vs. dos Anjos earned Fight of the Night awards; each fighter took home an extra $50,000.
Now, almost two years later and having picked up the UFC interim lightweight title, Ferguson will defend his strap against top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 223. The card is set to go down on April 7 in Brooklyn, N.Y.
