Tony Ferguson In Las Vegas To Meet With UFC Officials To Discuss His Future
Since then he hasn’t fought, but there was a report that Ferguson passed on the chance to meet Max Holloway at UFC 226 for a 155-interim lightweight bout.
Ferguson has been dealing with personal issues after his wife filed a restraining order filed against him for alleged domestic abuse back in March. However, things got resolved since last month as his wife didn’t pursue the case. ‘El Cucuy’ later claimed he’s cleared to return to the Octagon however UFC head honcho Dana White disagrees.
But now it seems things are getting together for Ferguson as he landed in Las Vegas to have a meeting with UFC brass about his UFC return.

Ferguson (24-3) is currently riding on 11 fight winning streak. If his meeting with UFC went well presumably, he’d return later this year to meet the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Dustin Poirier who are expected to clash at UFC 242 this September in Abu Dhabi in a title unification bout.
