During a recent interview, former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson shared his interest in fighting fellow interim belt holder Dustin Poirier.

“El Cucuy” suffered a heavy loss to Michael Chander during UFC 274 earlier this month. Though Ferguson had a solid first round, injuring “Iron” and dropping him, Chandler landed a reckless headbutt and knocked out El Cucuy seconds into the second frame.

Ferguson is on an 0-4 slip, the worst of his professional MMA career. But not to be deterred, Ferguson is still in the hunt for undisputed UFC gold. And the fighter told MMA Junkie that getting into a slugfest with “The Diamond” would be “not bad.”

“I’d love to be able to fight Dustin Poirier,” Ferguson said. “Obviously he likes to walk standing up. A stand-up battle wouldn’t be bad.”

Poirier is No. 2 in the lightweight division and a win over him would propel Ferguson back to the top of the division.

As for when he’ll fight next, Ferguson will let the UFC know when he’s ready.

“When I’m ready to fight, I will tell the UFC,” Fergusons continued. “I guarantee you, they’ll also let me know, ‘Hey, that’s who we have.’
