    It's clear to see that Tony Ferguson is on the downward slope of his career. However he's still a character and will make a fight exciting if given the chance. So who is the best matchup for gatekeeper Tony at this point in his career? I'd go with Dan Hooker. He's on a 2 fight skid himself, but it seems like it could be a FOTN candidate. What say you sherbros?

    Nate Diaz. Always wanted to see this fight, and since Nate won't wrestle him, it could be a good one.

    Shit, didn't even think about that. Not sure if Nate is still willing to make the cut to 155 these days. That would be a banger.

    At this point even if it was at 170, I doubt Tony would give a shit. It’s not like he’d be moving up in weight to fight a WW, he’d just be skipping a weight cut to fight another LW.

    Tony fought at 170 in TUF, I think he’d be cool with that

    Yeah if he is on Risperidone his fighting career should have ended the minute he got on it.
