Wife of Tony Ferguson Files Restraining Order Alleging Domestic Violence

Tony
Ferguson
‘s wife has sought a restraining order against the

Ultimate Fighting Championship
lightweight, alleging that he
made threatening remarks and demonstrated disturbing behavior on
multiple occasions.


MMAJunkie reported Thursday
that Ferguson’s wife filed a
restraining order against him. The order was filed after a series
of incidents where his wife called the police out of concern for
Ferguson and his well-being.

MMAJunkie.com was
provided with each of the incident reports
involving Ferguson
and his family. The reports included Ferguson and his wife getting
into arguments, Ferguson’s father asking him to leave his house,
Ferguson staying awake for days at a time and causing damage to
their fire place, Ferguson claiming there was a microchip implanted
in his leg and someone living in his walls, and repeatedly
splashing his wife with “holy water.” At one time, he also called
the police to report that his wife had been missing overnight.

The reports were very clear to state that at no point in any of the
incidents was Ferguson was violent, or that his wife was concerned
for her own safety or that of their child. While the incidents
repeated and he was encouraged to seek help, he refused to pursue
treatment. An investigation is set to take place on March 22, and
the hearing will take place on April 5.

Ferguson last competed inside the Octagon in a “Fight of the Night”
performance against Anthony
Pettis
at UFC 229 in October, where he finished the former UFC
and
World Extreme Cagefighting
champion in two rounds. Ferguson is
currently riding an 11-fight win streak, including eight stoppages,
and he has earned seven post-fight bonuses in his last seven bouts.
