He married Cristina Servin way back in June 2012. They have been together ever since. Servin was born on August 15 1991. While she is in the limelight only because of Ferguson, she has done some modeling work and has studied at California State University.

The 29-year-old was raised in America. Ferguson has previously stated that Cristina is one of his biggest motivators. In an interview with MMA interviews, he revealed that the letters ‘XT’ on his social media are for his wife. Other details about her family and childhood are still a mystery.

The couple has faced their fair share of difficulties too. Servin filed a restraining order against Ferguson in 2019. It came as a huge shock to fans around the world as the couple had been very amicable and close throughout the years. Servin told the Superior Court that Ferguson forcefully took their son from her parents’ house.

However, it was all resolved, and Servin said that Ferguson didn’t hurt her in any manner. She wanted him to get help as Ferguson was going through some problems and added that he was a great father and husband. Their son Armand Anthony was born in 2016 and only strengthened their relationship. The couple is going from strength to strength and looks great together.

‘El Cucuy’ was on an incredible run of 12 wins in a row in 2019. He also held the interim lightweight belt and was in talks to fight the lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a match that would possibly break all the records. However, the Russian had to pull out of the fight, and Ferguson faced Gaethje instead.

However, it didn’t go his way, as he lost the fight via knockout and Gaethje got the title shot. The American lost his second fight in a row to Charles Oliveira in late 2020. However, he looks like he’s back to his best now and needs to win this fight to get back to his winning ways. He’s an amazing fighter with an amazing family, and it would be good to see him back to his best.
