    Does Ferguson get knocked down in every fight? He really needs to work on that. It is not a good idea to use your fast recovery and cardio to beat opponents, ask Fedor.

    But after watching that fight, I think Ferguson is the clear favorite versus Kevin Lee. Kevin Lee has looked like a smaller Abel Trujillo, without the power, but better wrestling. So, it is reasonable to believe Ferguson vs Lee could play out like Ferguson vs Trujillo.

    Tony Ferguson can be beaten in a tactical and point scoring fight, because he doesn't fight to score points. His basic strategy is to use his striking and forward pressure to exhaust his opponent, and then he starts to take chances with BJJ submissions, because he knows the opponent is too tired to hold him down.

    His biggest weakness is his porous defense. He relies too much on his recovery and cardio, instead of technique to avoid potential KO/TKO blows. The best way to preserve your chin, is to not get hit, ask Floyd Mayweather.

    These are the kind of match-ups the UFC should be looking at.

    He's much better at fighting a point scoring game now than he used to be in that fight.
    Watch Ferguson vs RDA
