Recently Dana White said that Tony Ferguson is dealing with personal issues, and now it’s being reported the wife of the former UFC champ has filed a restraining order against him.
MMA Junkie has obtained records which report that Ferguson’s wife has filed a restraining order against the fighter, following multiple visits from the police to their home, and alleged incidents of bizarre behavior.
The report also says the restraining order cites accusations of domestic violence, but no details were included. The court has defined a restraining order for domestic violence, however, as an “order that helps protect people from abuse or threats of abuse from someone they have a close relationship with.”
Some of the allegations of erratic behavior from Ferguson include the fighter allegedly breaking up the fireplace in his home, stating he believed someone put a computer chip in his leg, and that he told a person he thought someone was “inside the walls.” Ferguson was never charged in any of the alleged situations.
The 35-year-old Ferguson hasn’t fought since October when he earned a TKO win (corner stoppage) over Anthony Pettis.
