UFC lightweight Tony Ferguson (pictured) has won six straight fights. Make that seven.

Ferguson posted an impressive second round submission victory over Edson Barboza Friday at UFC Fight Night 80.

Ferguson found himself behind the eight ball early after getting deducted a point for kicking a grounded Barboza in the face in the opening round. However, he stuck to his gameplan by pushing the pace and constantly putting the pressure on the Brazilian.

Barboza eventually left his neck open and Ferguson slapped on his trademark D’arce choke to seal the deal in the second stanza.

Ferguson took home an extra $100,000 for his part in “Fight of the Night” and “Performance of the Night.”

The TUF 22 Finale took place inside Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada.
