Edwards vs. Ferguson Wiki Update Wiki

The seventh bout of The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale featured veteran Yves Edwards taking on season 13 winner Tony Ferguson in the lightweight division.


Ferguson opened the bout with a low kick, landing several more over the next minute. Ferguson launched a front kick that barely missed Edwards's chin. Edwards landed a nice counter and then connected with a good head kick. On the next exchange Edwards landed a nice left in what was opening up as a competitive and tense opening round. Ferguson landed a strong right hand and threw a head kick of his own, blocked by Edwards. Ferguson backed Edwards down and landed several big punches in the final minute, looking to have Edwards in trouble of being finished. Edwards came back with a flurry and landed another high kick, ending up twisted up on the ground with Ferguson attempting an omoplata in the final seconds of an excellent round.


Edwards landed a good right hand early in the second and opened up with an array of strikes. A cut was opened on Ferguson's nose, but he came back midway through the round landing an excellent uppercut. Several great exchanges where both fighters were able to land. Ferguson shot for a takedown at the end of the second, putting Edwards briefly on his back.


The third round picked up with more competitive action. Ferguson landed a good kick to the body and his chin enabled him to walk through many of Edwards's attacks and land his own. Edwards again went back to the head kick, while Ferguson telegraphed a slow spinning back fist. Neither fighter took full control of the rest of the bout in what would be a tough fight to judge.


The judges scored the fight 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28 in favor of the winner by unanimous decision, Tony Ferguson. Speaking to Joe"I give my hat to Yves right here, this guy was really bad... I learned a lot from this fight and I had a hell of a time... I thought I got him a couple times where I hit him with a hard shot and was looking to finish him, but he snapped out of it, he's a hell of a fighter."

Why do people do backflips after they win fights by KO or sub? You just dominated a guy no one gives a fuck that you can do a backflip.
