Castillo and Ferguson will meet in LA

Lightweight showdown set for Aug. 2 in Los Angeles...
Coming off an impressive second-round TKO win over Charlie Brenneman at UFC 172, UFC lightweight Danny "Last Call" Castillo will face another tough test in his next bout when he meets Tony "El Cucuy" Ferguson at UFC 176 in Los Angeles, which was announced Wednesday afternoon by UFC matchmaker Joe Silva.

Ferguson, the winner of The Ultimate Fighter season 13, has won his last two fights and has won eight of his last nine, including an unbelievable finish of Katsunori Kikuno at UFC 173.

Team Alpha Male member Castillo has put together a 17-6 record, while Ferguson sits at 16-3. Both fighters are looking to break into the official UFC lightweight rankings and a win at 176 will go a long way to get them there.

UFC 176 is headlined by a UFC featherweight title contest between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes, who also fights out of Team Alpha Male.
