    This ought to be a great fight.
    Ferguson displayed great composure, excellent head movement, and fast hands. He’s also engages in violent aggression.

    Nijem surprised me, I did not expect a burst of energy in the second round against Cope. And he finished it off with a flurry of hard, well placed strikes out of nowhere. I missed part of the shows, I was under the impression Nijem was more of a wrestler.

    This looks like it’s going to be a great match up. I can’t wait.
