Ferguson, who made his professional debut in 2008, first took part in events run by organisations like California Xtreme Fighting, Total Fighting Alliance, PureCombat, etc.
In 2011, he had the opportunity to take part in The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos.
His UFC career then started, and he has since collected three victories in a row. Michael Johnson defeated Ferguson in his debut UFC fight in 2012.
Ferguson suffered a crushing setback after that and then completely changed, winning 12 matches in a row. ‘El Cucuy’ won the UFC lightweight championship at UFC 216 by submitting Kevin Lee.
He did, however, lose the championship due to a wound. Ferguson’s title-race performance has been incredibly unlucky.

Ferguson lost to Justin Gaethje in 2020, which was the beginning of his bad luck. The fighter has had a five-fight losing streak since then.
