An intriguing lightweight fight between Tony Ferguson and Michael Chiesa is in the works for the UFC's debut in South Dakota.

According to multiple sources, the promotion is currently targeting Ferguson vs. Chiesa as the main event of the July 13 card in Sioux Falls, S.D. The UFC has yet to officially announce the fight because it has yet to be finalized.

I like this option actually. These 2 guys are always proving me wrong.

And who would have thought Chiesa in a possible Title Eliminator.

This is a tough tough match up for both guys. Chiesa seems to wear everyone down he faces and Ferguson has a crazy workrate himself and cannot be contained in the floor. Very hard fight to call and either winning should fight Kabib for title elimininator

Chiesa always proves me wrong. Granted, he was losing in his last fight against Benny; but at the end of the day all that matters is getting your hand raised. With that being said, this is going to be a tough one for him to win. I think Fergy will look to keep it on the feet with how dangerous and crafty Chiesa is on the ground. If it stays standing, I just don't see how Chiesa can win. If it heads to the ground, could be a wash and any man takes the cake.

Two lanky lightweights! Should be a FOTN type brawl
