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.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck

In police comments on the incident report, she reported that “he kept throwing ‘holy water’ at her,” and his condition – redacted in the report – had been getting worse. He’d also refused to go to a hospital for an evaluation.

jesus christ man this is sad

In January 2018, police were called on two separate occasions for family disturbances. Ferguson’s father reported his son was “out of control” and kicked him out of the house. Tony Ferguson also reported Cristina Ferguson missing overnight.

It's not the first time too and the whole family seems to be aware. Fuck me this is unbelievably shitty and sad for all involved.

Damn dude, I hope this is drugs. Because this is sounding awfully like delusions from paranoid schizophrenia or a manic episode.

Dang. I guess that sherdog guy had a legit source then. Hopefully Tony can come back from this, I really hope we don't have to look back at him like the Len Bias of MMA for him and his families sake

This sounds like a manic episode. Recently, I’ve been going through em too. Seems like it hits right around this age, especially if you’ve been dealing with it for a whiles. I hope he gets help, but he really shouldn’t fight.

Coul be onset schizophrenia. My father was diagnosed a year after I was born at the age of 31. He thought seat belts were snakes and was paranoid the government was tracking him through the car radio. RIP pop I love you. Hope this isn’t that for Tony and he gets helped. Really ripped my family apart.

Did anyone else watch his segment of the postfight press conference at 229? He just rambled non sequiters pretty much continuously for half an hour. I found it kind of concerning at the time but I guess I should have taken it more seriously.
