Ferguson began his mixed martial arts professional career in 2007 by participating in minor organisations across California. A victory over kickboxing champion Joe Schilling was one of his early victories.
Ferguson made his official UFC debut on the last episode of season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter, the season in which he won. He defeated Kevin Lee to become the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s interim lightweight champion.
A terrifying accident cost him the championship. Despite this, his supporters refer to him as the “People’s Champion.”
Ferguson had a spotless record in the twelve contests preceding up to his fight with Justin Gaethje. He tried for a second time to win the temporary championship, but ‘The Highlight’ stopped him in his tracks once more.
His most recent fight was at UFC 256, where he lost to Charles Oliveira by unanimous decision, ending his winning streak.
