Ahead of his much anticipated UFC 273 lightweight bout against Michael Chandler, we take a look at Tony Ferguson’s wife, his family and more
Tony Ferguson has cemented his legacy as one of the most entertaining fighters ever, thanks to his unorthodox approach like pulling out an Imanarai roll mid-way into the fight, or his bloodied battles that put opponents on the pedestal. Through his unconventional sand in the eye sequences, to his unapologetic mind, Ferguson has carved a space for himself as one of MMA’s most beloved son.
A former NCWA wrestler and tenth planet jiu-jitsu black belt, Tony always stands up to any challenge presented in his way, and puts up strong resistance during uncomfortable position, thanks to his never say die mentality. It is almost impossible to break his spirit inside the octagon, and fighters find themselves in deep waters when the ‘El Cucuy’ is in control of things.
Ferguson was a three-sport athlete at Muskegon Catholic Central High School in American football, baseball, and wrestling. He was the starting defensive back for the 2000 Division 8 state football champions and was a three-time All-State selection in wrestling, winning the 152-lb division in 2002.
An Ultimate Fighter finale winner, Tony went on one of the most illustrious 12 fight win streak in the UFC, with an interim title victory under his belt. He has currently been on a loosing skid and downward spiral, having not won a single round in his last three fights that he lost.
A lot of this credit for his strength goes to his wife Christina Servin, who has been a rock-solid and unshakable support for Tony. The pair have been together for years and she has seen his growth not only as a fighter, but also as a person, and the pair enjoy their position as one of the power-couple in the game.

Servin was born on 15th August 1991. While she is in the limelight only because of Ferguson, she has done some modelling work and has studied at California State University.
