Pettis offers a wild spinning kick and misses and now Ferguson is pressing forward, working the body. Pettis lands a right hook and Ferguson is hurt.

Pettis attempted to get the finish but Ferguson did a masterful job of holding on until he could regain his composure. Exciting action here that's broken up momentarily so a doctor can check on Pettis' cut, but he's fine to continue. Pettis tries for a insane cartwheel kick that isn't effective and he ends up on his knees with Ferguson landing punches down on him in the final seconds of the round.

Ferguson brought to tears after earning the win. During his absence, Pettis got back into the win column with a strong showing against Michael Chiesa, looking like the Anthony Pettis of old. He is faster and more accurate than Ferguson and should look to outpoint him.
