- The crash saw him hit two parked cars and flip his truck in May
UFC fighter Tony Ferguson has been sentenced to a year of probation after allegedly crashing his truck into two parked cars in Los Angeles in May.
Details of the crash
Ferguson’s truck flipped over outside a Hollywood nightclub just before 2:00am on May 7 and was left on its side, though nobody was hurt.
He was charged with driving under the influence in June but decided to plead not guilty.
Now, according to TMZ, he struck a deal with prosecutors on November 20 that saw him plead no contest to one misdemeanor count of reckless driving upon a highway.
In exchange, his DUI charge was dismissed and he was sentenced to one year of probation.
He was driving under influence
Ferguson was reportedly ‘very uncooperative’, according to authorities at the time. They also claimed he reeked of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot.
Ferguson, the former interim lightweight champion, can now refocus on his return to the octagon.
He has not fought since losing by technical submission to Bobby Green at UFC 291 in July.
The 39-year-old is set to face British fighter Paddy Pimblett at UFC 296 on December 16.
