The fight that I (and many) are looking forward to most at UFC 238 features a pairing of lightweights who like to dictate the pace and space of a contest.
POINT OF INTEREST: DICTATING PACE AND SPACE
Walking a fine line between forward-mover and voracious marauder, Tony Ferguson can seldom be found taking a back step in his fights.
Whether he is feinting or throwing, Ferguson – for the most part – is consistently putting pressure on his opponents, looking to either slice-and-dice his way inside or half-step his way into kill shots off of his accurate jab. However, it is in these instances of shifting attacks and advancements where Ferguson is most hittable/susceptible to being countered.
Against a fighter like Donald Cerrone, the former interim champ could get more than he bargains for in that regard.
A pronounced muay Thai striker who loves to play in space, Cerrone embraces his kickboxing base, using leg kicks and teeps from a distance. Mixing in his punches appropriately to both the head and body, Cerrone will draw out his opponent’s defenses to set up the fight-ending head kicks that comprise his highlight reel.
In recent years, the 13-year pro has proven to provide much more than kicks and knees standing, showing strides in his ability to connect punches inside the pocket or in combination.
Nevertheless, no matter how promising the prospects are of a Cerrone finish, Ferguson has shown an uncanny ability to absorb punishment and haunt his opposition, living up to his moniker of “El Cucuy.” And though rolling with oncoming offense to return fire can be a risky proposition in MMA, it is one that Ferguson – for now – gets positive returns on due to his persistence to stay poised and play the long game.
