Might Get Imprisonment

Ferguson made his mixed martial arts professional debut in 2008 and currently holds a record of 26-8. He has, however, dropped his last five matches. From October 2017 to April 2018, he held the title of interim lightweight champion for the UFC.

Ferguson has already made headlines for his conduct outside of the ring. He claimed that his wife had threatened him and their child with violence in a restraining order he obtained against her in 2019. Later, the order was cancelled, and the pair got back together.

The news of Ferguson’s arrest serves as a stark warning that impaired driving is never acceptable and can have serious repercussions, even for well-known people.
