Christina Ferguson’s attorney has confirmed there are no matters pending in the case involving Tony Ferguson, which saw a restraining order filed against the UFC star last month by his wife.

Tony Ferguson’s life is slowly getting back in order. On Tuesday, MMA Fighting reported that a restraining order against the lightweight star, taken out by his wife, had been dropped. More accurately, the order expired, but Cristina Ferguson opted not to go through with an April 5 hearing on the case.

Her attorney, Jeffery L. Heath, advised that “there are no matters pending in this case.”

Reports of erratic behavior from the UFC lightweight emerged in March, including Ferguson believing people were living in his walls, and that a computer chip had been planted in his leg. Rather than paint a picture of an abusive husband, the concerns around Ferguson brought forward by his wife were more about a man on the verge of a mental collapse. It appears, however, that whatever concerns his wife has, they have been satisfied, at least for the time being.

Ferguson (24–3), a former UFC interim lightweight champion, last fought in October at UFC 229, where he defeated Anthony Pettis in a Fight of the Night winning battle. The bout ended due to a corner stoppage after the second round. Ferguson, who won The Ultimate Fighter 13 at welterweight, has not lost since 2012. He is currently on an eleven fight winning streak.
