Ferguson failed to put out much offence during the 23 minutes though he was able to drop Gaethje briefly towards the end of the second round with an uppercut. That wasn't all, Ferguson was able to absorb so much beating and punches that could possibly take out any Lightweight on the UFC roster.

Gaethje controlled aggression continued as he gradually took out Ferguson, punching out a cut on Ferguson's eye and left him a bloody mess by the fifth. The fight wasn't stopped till the final two minutes, when Gaethje connected a stiff jab on Ferguson , who staggered backwards and shook his head and forced the referee Herb Dean to intervene.
