Josh Thompson vs Tony Ferguson set for UFN 72
(mmajunkie.com)

The UFC’s July visit to California has its first official fight, as Tony Ferguson (18-3 MMA, 8-1 UFC) meetsJosh Thomson (20-7 MMA, 3-3 UFC). UFC officials today announced the contest, which takes place at UFC Fight Night 72 on July 15 at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center. The UFC announced the event earlier this month but did not reveal any matchups for the card. Ferguson currently sits at No. 14 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings, while Thomson is an honorable mention. “El Cucuy” Ferguson, “The Ultimate Fighter 13? winner, is currently riding a five-fight winning streak and has lost just once in nine octagon appearances. Most recently, Ferguson earned an impressive first-round submission over longtime veteran Gleison Tibau at February’s UFC 184 event. “The Punk” Thomson looks to snap a disappointing run of back-to-back split-decision losses to Bobby Green and Benson Henderson. He was expected to compete earlier this month at UFC Fight Night 62 against Gilbert Burns, but injury forced Thomson to withdraw from the matchup.
