Following his big win against Rafael do Anjos on Saturday night in Mexico City, Tony Ferguson technically declared war on multipledivisions. Now, with nine consecutive victories – a record in the UFC for consecutive divisional wins, Ferguson is eyeing for multiple belts, including the one in the lightweight division currently held by Eddie Alvarez.
In a post-fight interview with MMAJunkie at UFC Fight Night Mexico, Ferguson said he is first gunning for the lightweight belt, then plans to work his way down for the featherweight belt, and do the same at 170-pounds.
I’m here to win. There are two other divisions I would love to be able to go into. I made 153 pounds at the weigh-ins. I weighed in with pants on. I can go down to 145. I can kick everyone’s butt there. I can bump back up to 155, knock everybody out and finish them and you’re damn sure I can go to 170 and do the same thing. I want to be a multi-division champ.
Speaking to Jon Anik during his Octagon interview, Ferguson also added,
I’m not gonna talk my way to get there. I’m gonna earn it every single step of the way, like I said from the Ultimate Fighter house.
Ferguson defeated Dos Anjos by unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night Mexico. Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night for their performance.
