Steven Marrocco, of MMA Junkie, reported Thursday that Cristina Ferguson, the wife of UFC star Tony Ferguson, had filed a no-contact order against her.
According to Marrocco, police have filed five incident reports documenting "several domestic strife at Ferguson's residence since January 2018, including three last month".
