The American suffered his first pro defeat in his last 13 fight when last Saturday Justin Gaethje beat him for the interim lightweight championship.

Immediate post-fight reports indicated a broken orbital bone for “El Cucuy,” which would force him to have surgery, but after further examination that will not be the case, Ferguson’s team told MMA Junkie on Friday.

As a result, Ferguson’s timeline to return to the octagon could be expedited, although it remains to be seen what’s next and when.
