Tony Ferguson will be getting his first crack at a UFC (interim) title this October. Billboards are already up to promote this bout against Kevin Lee, but someone made a glaring error that the #2 ranked lightweight noticed.

Ferguson took to social media about it.

Ferguson has fought as high as welterweight when he won Season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter, but has found a groove at lightweight where he has gone 11-1 in the UFC.

Interestingly enough, he did mention he would be open to dropping to 145 lbs in the past, saying he wants to be a multi-division champion. But in the mean time, will have to continue his lightweight campaign with a dangerous guy in Lee in front of him, and a looming unification bout against Conor McGregor for the winner.

UFC 216 happens on October 7, and will also have Fabricio Werdum vs Derrick Lewis and Paige VanZant vs Jessica Eye on the undercard.
