Take Over 2.5 Rounds Gaethje-Ferguson
Ferguson was originally set to headline UFC 249 opposite Khabib Nurmagomedov for the 155lb (Lightweight) title. But the times we are currently living in put those plans on hold. So instead it will be Ferguson taking on Justin Gaethje to determine an interim champ at 155 lbs and the winner (according to Dana White) will go on to fight Nurmagomedov at some point. Despite Gaethje predicting that this fight will be over "inside of three rounds," look for this fight to go Over the number of rounds set (2.5). Ferguson (25-3) last lost in May of 2012 and enters Saturday on a 12-fight win streak. He's only been stopped ONCE in his entire professional career and that was back in 2009. Gaethje (21-2) was stopped in both of his pro defeats but those came in the third and fourth round respectively. Don't expect this one to be over too quickly.
