American mixed martial artist Anthony Armand Ferguson Padilla was born on February 12, 1984. He currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's Lightweight division. He once held the title of interim lightweight champion in the UFC.


Since he won “The Ultimate Fighter 13” in 2011, Ferguson, who made his MMA debut in 2008, has been affiliated with the UFC.

Ferguson knocked out Nijem in the opening round and received a UFC contract. In addition, he received the Knockout of the Night bonus.


Ferguson returned to the lightweight division after his debut, taking on Aaron Riley at UFC 135 on September 24, 2011.

On September 10, 2022, Ferguson was slated to fight Li Jingliang in the co-main event of UFC 279 to make his return to the welterweight division. However, Ferguson faced Nate Diaz, and in the fourth round, Ferguson was submitted by guillotine choke, ending the fight.
