Ferguson was reportedly ‘very uncooperative’, according to authorities at the time. They also claimed he reeked of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot.
Sunday’s car crash comes nearly eight months after Ferguson came out of a fight against Nate Diaz with a gruesome leg gash.
The California-native replaced Khamzat Chimaev at the last minute to take on Diaz in September 2022, due to the Russian-born Swede not meeting the requirement of weighing at least 186-pounds.

In 2019, Ferguson’s wife Christina (right) filed a restraining order against her husband so that he could get help to better his mental health
In 2019, Ferguson’s wife, Christina, filed a restraining order against him, alleging ‘uncharacteristic behavior’ such as intense paranoia, sleep deprivation and that he tore the fireplace at their home.
She added that the UFC fighter believed a tracking chip was inserted into his leg during reconstructive knee surgery, though she didn’t allege physical abuse and mainly filed the restraining order so that her husband could better his mental health.
In April, Ferguson’s wife withdrew the order.
Ferguson started his mixed martial arts career in 2008 and has been with the UFC since winning the Ultimate Fight 13 against Ramsey Nijem in 2011.
He won 25 of his 33 fights — 12 of them by knockout, eight by submission, and five by decision.
