A UFC hall of famer has now been arrested for domestic violence, and one can only hope that he is able to get his life back together.

This UFC hall of famer is an individual named Chuck Liddell, and he was arrested on a Monday several months ago and he was booked into a Los Angeles-area jail on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery.

They were holding Liddell, 51, at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff Station in Agoura Hills, California just outside of Los Angeles, according to the inmate report from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. They set Liddell’s bail at $20,000.

TMZ was the first news outlet to report on Liddell’s arrest. According to various reports, the police were called to Liddell’s home and they determined that there was an argument between Liddell and his wife that had turned physical.

Liddell married Heidi Northcott nearly ten years ago, and the couple had their first child in 2011 and then a sibling followed in 2013. The TMZ report noted that Northcott did not need any medical attention in this matter.

Although Liddelll had originally fought at 205 pounds during his MMA career, he was booked in at 240 pounds and 6-foot-2 when he made his stay at the Sheriff’s Office.

Liddell won the UFC light heavyweight title in 2005 when he knocked out Randy Couture, someone whom he shared the most memorable trilogies in MMA. This first title started a run that made “The Iceman” the biggest star in this sport at the time.

Liddell would ultimately lose the belt to Quinton Jackson at UFC 71 in 2007 and that was the beginning of a 1-5 slide to close out his career.Liddell attempted a comeback several times, but kept getting knocked out, most notably by Tito Ortiz in 2018.

Besides the UFC, he’s been in a dozen movies and a number of television shows.


On October 18, 2020, the local sheriff’s office that Liddell was book in announced that they would not be pursuing criminal charges against him.
