UFC lightweight contender Tony Ferguson seems to be headed on the right direction, in terms of his recovery. Early this month, he revealed that passed his medical evaluations, and shortly after, his wife, Cristina has apparently decided to drop the restraining order she previously filed against him as well.

Cristina filed the court document in mid-March after a series of domestic issues arose between them.

Ferguson last saw action at UFC 229 last October, where he defeated former 155-pound champion Anthony Pettis via second-round TKO.
