    Sigh...
    Tony Ferguson's wife files restraining order after multiple police visits to home

    "The wife of former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson on Wednesday filed a restraining order against her husband, alleging domestic violence.

    According to online records, Cristina Ferguson filed the restraining order in Orange County (Calif.) Superior Court. An ex-parte hearing took place the same day. The court’s domestic violence prevention services project has scheduled an investigation for March 22; a domestic violence hearing is scheduled for April 5.

    Details were not immediately available on the specific allegations made by Cristina Ferguson. The court’s definition of a domestic violence restraining order is an “order that helps protect people from abuse or threats of abuse from someone they have a close relationship with.”

    MMA Junkie obtained five police incident reports that detail several domestic disturbances at the Ferguson residence since January 2018, including three in the past month. The police reports were redacted to protect certain identifying information. Tony Ferguson wasn’t arrested or charged with a crime in any of those situations.

    The restraining order was filed less than one week after six police units were dispatched to the Ferguson home in Santa Ana. Cristina Ferguson told police she was at her parent’s house in La Mirada this past Friday when Tony Ferguson took their 2-year-old son back to their house and changed the locks on the doors, according to a police report. She said she didn’t fear for the child’s safety, and officers left after determining there was no custody order and no crime committed.

    On Feb. 19, police conducted a welfare check on Tony Ferguson after he made unknown threats, and his wife and son left their house, according to a separate police report. Police spoke to an unidentified female who stated Tony Ferguson had “not slept for three days and was tearing apart the home” and “broke apart the fire place and believed someone placed a (computer) chip in his leg.” An unidentified male who’d called the police said the fighter had told him “someone was inside his walls.” Nearly two hours after the police made contact, Cristina Ferguson told police her husband’s trainer couldn’t get him to leave the house to see a doctor..."

    Legit looks like Tony is in a dark place and hope he gets the help he needs. Crazy how many fighters have depression issues such as this. I think Max has talked about his issues as well...

    Well... That would explain why we ended up with Max vs Dustin being announced on the 23rd.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. But then again, he's always kinda looked and acted like a bit of a crack head. hopefully the pain killers from pushing through the knee surgery so fast wasn't a gateway to harder stuff.

    Or CTE.

    Tony and Conor both exhibiting signs of potential CTE. Or they're both just going koo koo for coco. Either way, it's sad af to watch unfold.

    I dont see anyone going from painkillers to meth/coke.it is more likely to go from painkillers to heroin/fentynal

    I was just about to say this. Painkillers are not a gateway to speed so stop spreading that sort of BS. Weed is not a gateway either. Now if he were drinking a ton, coke does mix “well” with alcohol (allows you to drink more since it kind of sobers you up a bit) but who knows if this is really the case here.

    He may just be prone to paranoia and I can see hanging out with EdgyBrah triggering those thoughts more and more. I know some people like to play with conspiracy theories and such but there is a point at it can become an illness and start affecting your day to day life.

    Maybe he has the potential for schizophrenia and it’s just starting to come out now? If that’s the case I would seriously consider not being around Bravos wacky “theories”.

    Either way I’m really glad to hear that this didn’t end up down a violent path. Who knows what could happen in the future but hopefully this will force his hand to get the help he needs and even if it means retirement maybe he can live a semi normal life and be there for his family. This sounds rough either way. :-/

    I'd bet it's a mental health issue over meth based on the bit I've read especially with the way the documents were redacted. Hopefully this ends up getting him some help in the long run. Sad shit either way
