Tony Ferguson will face Charles Oliveira at UFC 256 on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas, per Dana White. Ferguson gets his wish to fight again before the end of 2020. A huge addition to that Dec. 12 event.

It was first reported by Brett Okamoto that UFC is finalizing a lightweight bout between Tony Ferguson and Charles Oliveira for UFC 256 on Dec. 12.

Ferguson was scheduled to face Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC Lightweight Championship on April 18, 2020, at UFC 249, but after Nurmagomedov was unable to leave Russia due to restricted air travel as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Ferguson then agreed to compete for the Interim UFC Lightweight Championship against a late replacement in Justin Gaethje at the event.

However, on April 9, Dana White, the president of UFC announced that this event was postponed and the bout eventually took place on May 9, 2020. He lost the fight via TKO in the fifth round. This fight earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.
