Former lightweight champion, Rafael dos Anjos and Tony Ferguson were in Mexico City this week to promote their upcoming UFC Fight Night bout, which has been set for early November.

After all the interviews and the intense first stare down, they, along with UFC fighter Heather Jo Clark, traipsed around Mexico City together.

Okay, it was probably a planned UFC photo op, but please don't ruin my fun!

Rafael dos Anjos is coming off his first loss since 2014. He lost the lightweight belt to Eddie Alvarez during UFC Fight Night: Las Vegas, which was one of three cards during the UFC's International Fight Week.

Tony Ferguson, who is ranked third in the division, is on an eight-fight win streak, with his most recent win coming by way of D'arce choke at UFC Fight Night: Sioux Falls.

This bout is said to be the deciding factor for who will get the next title shot.

The fight is set for Nov. 5 in Mexico City.
