Tony Ferguson Settles DUI Charge, Focuses on Upcoming UFC Bout

Ferguson Reaches Plea Deal, DUI Charge Dismissed

UFC lightweight Tony Ferguson has resolved a DUI charge stemming from a May arrest through a plea deal. The DUI charge was dismissed, with Ferguson pleading Nolo Contendere to a lesser charge of wet reckless driving. As part of the agreement, he will serve one year of probation.

Incident Details and Court Proceedings:

Ferguson was arrested in May after allegedly crashing into two parked cars in Hollywood, subsequently flipping his truck. Initially pleading not guilty, he later accepted the plea deal, dismissing the DUI charge. Judge Shannon K. Cooley of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County ruled on the case.

Ferguson’s Return to the Octagon:

Despite the legal setback, Ferguson, aged 39, is scheduled to face Paddy Pimblett on December 15 at UFC 296. This marks his return since a July loss to Bobby Green. Ferguson’s focus now shifts to this highly-anticipated bout.
