Former Bellator lightweight champion and newly debuted UFC fighter Will Brooks wants to fight Tony Ferguson.

According to a tweet last week he wants to fight "El Cucuy" when he comes back from his honeymoon in August.

Ferguson is on an eight fight win streak, most recently submitting Landon Vannata at UFC Sioux Falls. Brooks made his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter Finale during UFC's International Fight week where he defeated Ross Pearson via unanimous decision.

Ferguson has yet to acknowledge Brook's comments, but one of Ferguson's coaches has.

"Who is Will Brooks?" said Anthony Gonzalez who spoke to exclusively. "Why would Tony want to fight another guy not in the top 10? Will is just looking to make a name for himself."

Ferguson is currently ranked number three in the lightweight division and Brooks is ranked 12.
