UFC 279: JingLiang vs Tony Ferguson match prediction
Ferguson was a ferocious player who won 12 interim lightweight championships in the past and is now on a 4-fight losing streak and has been TKO’d in 2 of these four fights. He is no longer elite himself and still likes to fight the way he used to, which made him loved by many.
JingLiang, on the other hand, being a wrestle-boxer, employs his style by throwing massive overhand rights into a takedown power parlayed with underrated athleticism, making him quite successful. But he had been inconsistent due to his affinity for fighting.
The consistency and last matches played, there are more chances for Lijiang as Ferguson has shown a somewhat contrary fight in his previous four compared to his 12-fight win streak.
The fans can expect anyone to win in a game where Tony is a more experienced player than JingLiang at the UFC 279, so let us wait for the fight to come to an end.
