Tony Ferguson is losing his mind ...

Dana White may have been underselling things when he recently told fans that top ranked UFC lightweight Tony Ferguson was experiencing “personal issues,” when explaining why the fighter hasn’t been seen in the Octagon since October of 2018.

After rumors began swirling late last week of marital distress in the Ferguson household, MMAjunkie now reports that ‘El Cucuy’’s wife, Cristina Ferguson, has filed a restraining order against the fighter.

According to Junkie’s investigation, the court intervention comes following a string of bizarre incidents involving police visits to the Ferguson home — starting in January of 2018, and with three occurring in the last month.

These reportedly included Ferguson destroying items, talking about a computer chip he claimed was implanted in his leg, throwing holy water at his wife, and believing that “someone was inside his walls.”

Things seem to have come to a head last Friday when he apparently took their son from his parents house, where his wife was visiting, and brought him back to their home, after which he changed the locks on the doors.

The restraining order against him was filed just a few days later.

In multiple police reports, it appears that Ferguson’s wife has claimed that she did not fear for the safety of their child and that he had not been violent toward her or anyone else, but that his outbursts seemed to be getting worse and he was refusing to see a doctor. As a result of this behavior, the Orange County Superior Court has scheduled a domestic violence investigation for March 22, and a domestic violence hearing for April 5th.

It sounds like a lot of people are surrounding this young man to protect him.

He probably should heed their advice and grow up

If he "Ray Riced" her it is going to come out when they do divorce

or if he does it to her again and UFC has not cut bait, they will face the wrath of hashtag

Did you read the article?

This has nothing to do with domestic abuse, It's his erratic behavior she's worried about.

The wife does not fear for her safety or fear for the safety of their child and has made it clear to police that Tony has not been violent toward her or anyone else ... It's the outbursts she's worried about.

The only thing he did to her was toss Holy Water on her.

Cristina Ferguson's lawyer, Jeffrey L. Heath, released a statement with his client explaining her reasoning for the temporary restraining order.


"Tony Ferguson is a good husband and good father to our son"

"The current legal proceedings are a part of a process to ensure that Tony will receive the help necessary to continue being the best possible, as well as to pursue his passion and career as a UFC champion fighter"

"All positive well wishes are sincerely appreciated and I hope our privacy will be respected."

No I heard about it on Luke Thomas show...he referenced he had thrown something at her I did not catch what still if you start having those type of reactions that are strong enough she talks about it seems like it is escalating

By the Ray Rice wife stands by her husband to...

Though clearly he has not crossed that line

It looks like Ferguson is doing everything in his power to overcome his personal issues at home.

“Psychologist appt went well, thanks doc. Champ shit only,” Ferguson posted on social media.

Ferguson announced on Twitter that he has finally been given the all-clear to return to training and regain what he believes is rightfully his.

He wants Nurmagomedov to fight him or vacate the title.
