After days of rumors of their upcoming fight it is finally official, Tony Ferguson will face Anthony Pettis at UFC 229 in his return to the Octagon.

Ferguson hasn’t fought since October of 2017, but comes into his fight with Pettis riding a 10 fight win streak. Pettis last fought back at UFC 226 when he submitted Michael Chiesa in the second round with a triangle.
